Where We Are Going

Our Vision is to become the world’s first voice based, globally networked, AI driven, human risk assessment services enterprise.

What We Do

Our mission is to accelerate trust by leveraging cutting-edge technology to solve the world’s hardest problems.

We believe in augmenting holistic risk management systems by arming human experts with accurate data to make better decisions, faster.

We saw a need for a different kind of risk assessment technology to screen large volumes of people for risk and to accelerate trust without bias, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to deploy it. That’s why we founded AC Global Risk.

In 2006, our technology’s inventor was a member of a task force charged to solve the problem of vetting 700,000 Mexican Police after it was feared they were infiltrated by drug cartels and other criminal organizations.

There was simply no way to accomplish this unless a new technology was invented that could securely and accurately screen massive volumes of people simultaneously.

After several years of research, development, testing, and fine-tuning, technology was deployed and has obtained powerful and conclusive results for all risk assessment applications undertaken to date.
