The 4th annual Global Anti Scam Summit is coming up this October in Lisbon, Portugal and online. Running from October 18-19th, 2023,  the goal of the GASS is to bring governments, consumer & financial authorities, law enforcement, brand protection agencies, and (cybersecurity) companies together to share knowledge and define joint actions to protect consumers from getting scammed.

With nearly $ 55 billion lost to scams last year with more than 300 million consumers falling victim to scammers, fast action is required. This year focuses on defining solutions for how to turn the tide on scams and showcasing best practices from across the globe. Tickets can be obtained here.

Netsweeper is pleased to be hosting a segment on how to allow preventative action (warn, block, stop) starting at 09:30 on October 19th. Our CEO Perry Roach will be speaking about methods for enforcing the law in the wild wild west of today’s internet landscape.
