Imagine a world where online fraud no longer exists

At RISK IDENT, we believe the future is fraud-less. We are experts at preventing fraud, and our technology and expertise gets better with each fraudster we stop, getting us closer to our goal. Fancy yourself a Sherlock Holmes of the web? Solve real fraud cases and help our clients detect the fraudsters among their customers.

What we do

RISK IDENT provides anti-fraud solutions to companies within the e-commerce, telecommunications and financial sectors. We are experts in device fingerprinting and behavioural analytics, and our innovative solutions help protect businesses from fraud and loss of revenue. Online fraud is organised crime, and it’s on the rise. Since fraudsters learn to exploit the weaknesses of traditional fraud prevention tools over time, our self-learning and adaptive software prepare businesses for new fraud scenarios, both now and in the future. Our products are specifically tailored to comply with European data privacy regulations.

Our Culture

We place high value in a healthy company culture, so people can come in with a smile on their faces each morning and find happiness in what they do. A healthy culture requires a set of core values everyone can align themselves with. A common set of values defines who we are and what we believe in. How we work and how we treat each other. Values direct our daily decision making and build the framework within which each employee is free to work.

Our Core Values


We emphasize transparent communication as a key to a successful collaboration. We share information and act with integrity. This does not mean you have to ask everyone for their opinion before making a decision. But it does means you should be prepared to explain why you made that decision at any point.



We strive for constant improvement and can only get better when we #giveandtakefeedback. We are not afraid to speak up and share our ideas, and we encourage others to challenge them! We see feedback as a positive thing, which we embrace and appreciate.



We strive for self-organization which requires a high degree of ownership by every single team member. There is no one to take over for you – we are all in this together. Being self-organized implies taking responsibility for everything you and your team delivers. And when we do a mistake, we don’t blame each other, but rather appreciate the learning opportunity. We take responsibility and make it better.



To beat the fraudster, we need to #thinklikeafraudster – which means we need to know their habits and understand them as best as possible, even before they commit fraud. We aim to create a world where online fraud no longer exists, and to do so we must think outside of the box – place our thinking in the mind of the fraudster, and anticipate their next move before they make it.



We are passionate about preventing fraud, and this is the motivating factor to get out of bed every morning. We overcome challenges each day and create positive change, making this world a better place!



We might be a bunch of diverse people from all over the world, but the one thing we have in common is a passion to do good and open-mindedness. Spread joy, have fun and laugh often! We interact respectfully with each other, always. We are all the same and no one is above getting involved and helping another out.
