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.

Free Number Plan Management Demo

Following the launch of the RAG-Biaas web portal, Biaas will give a free proof of concept to any RAG member wanting to understand how better number plan data improves billing accuracy and reduces IRSF fraud. Visit the new portal to learn more.

Want to Host RAG?

Some of the biggest names have welcomed RAG events to their head offices, including BT, Sprint, Deutsche Telekom and MTN. Does your telco want to receive the benefits of hosting a RAG conference?
