The International Risk Congress is organized by the Risk & Compliance Platform Europe. The site has been live since 2014 and is publishing in six languages (English, French, Dutch, German, Italian and Polish). This site is an international interactive platform for all professionals working in the field of risk and compliance, both in the financial world as well as in the corporate environment and public sector. Our target group not only consists of risk and compliance managers, but also general and business managers who, in their daily work, are confronted with increased risks and pressure from both national and international government agencies and regulators. Each language site has its own dedicated content, unlike other language sites. The website is an open forum, that enables  the professional visitors to express their views.
