Welcome to the Risk & Assurance Group
Free events and online services for communications risk and assurance professionals
RAG has organised events for comms professionals working in business assurance for longer than anyone else. Now we aim to become the biggest global provider of free information and advice through our international conferences and online services.
Trial of Wangiri Blockchain Ledger
RAG, in partnership with Orillion, is building a distributed database of numbers used in wangiri attacks. Blockchain technology makes this database uniquely quick and easy to access. Telcos and vendors who share their data may access the ledger without charge. The following video shows the user interface.
Live trials involving multiple telcos have begun. To learn more, look here.
Watch the Pilot of RAG TV
RAG wants to bring its free interactive content to as wide an audience as possible, and so we have been experimenting with live streaming via Twitch and then making the episodes available on demand through YouTube, with all this presented on the dedicated RAG TV portal on this website.
Hosted by Eric Priezkalns, each half-hour episode will feature a rundown of recent news, analysis from experts like Lee Scargall and special guests from telcos and vendors. The audience can ask questions through the same real-time system used at RAG conferences. Take a look at the following pilot episode to see what RAG Television will be like; the topics covered include national RA audits, mobile ad fraud, research into internet piracy and the RAG Leakage Coverage Survey.
We are now looking for guests and sponsors for the first scheduled season of episodes. If you would like to contribute to the making of RAG TV, please let us know.
