”Safe Gambling” is a new term used in the industry and is a possible replacer for the notion ”responsible gambling”. While the responsible gambling focuses on studying and fighting the negative effects of excessive gambling practice, the broader concept of ”safe gambling”, also contains the prevention area. IT security, compliance is also a huge aspect of the term.

We are implementing a panel discussion to the busy agenda of #PragueGamingSummit3 which will focus on Safe Gambling, IT Security, CRM, AML, KYC and the use of AI in Responsible Gambling.

The panel discussion is titled as “(Horus Session) Safe Gambling – IT security and AML / KYC” and will be moderated by industry veteran, Pieter Remmers (CEO, Assissa), who will focus on bringing out the most recent information from the panelist.

Confirmed speakers of the panel are Martin Stöfler (Co-Founder, OSM Solutions), Dr. Manfred Galdes (Partner at ARQ Group Malta), Francesco Baranca (General Secretary at Federbet AISBL), Kim Mouridsen (Founder at Mindway AI), and last but not least, Alina B Gleiss (EMEA Sales Manager at Zendesk).
