Lottery and Gaming
Most gaming organizations have been expanding their Information Technology footprint in recent years, mirroring the trend in Federal, State and Local governments. While these new technologies provide increased productivity and better quality of service to the end users, they also introduce new security risks if implemented incorrectly. This is the same for implementing a new firewall, upgrading point-of-sale (POS), moving into iGaming, or changing overall network design. Information security needs to be taken into consideration and your environment needs to be secured. It is a common misconception to believe that small, unknown organizations are immune. Attackers do not discriminate between a large organization with multiple casinos and a smaller one with only a few Internet resources. What does change is the level of risk. Most organizations, including casinos, will never be completely secure. Consequently, informed decisions must be made about reducing risks to acceptable levels commensurate with the possible damage and likelihood of occurrence. SeNet’s goal is to help identify vulnerabilities to help you make well-informed risk based business decisions and increase your organization’s overall security posture.
Five years ago, SeNet moved into both the land-based side and iGaming components of the gaming industry. Over a fairly short period of time, we have learned that while casinos vary greatly in their size, staff, and technical expertise most do face significant IT security challenges. We believe that SeNet can provide valuable services both for those organizations that have mature security programs and for those that have never conducted a vulnerability assessment.
Over the past few years, we have worked with traditional land-based casinos such as Spirit Mountain Casino, Soboba, and Borgata as well as iGaming operators like Bwin.Party, GAN, Bally, and Betfair. Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) sites are another customer base in which we have provided services. We have also assisted North Carolina, MUSL, and Arizona lotteries with IT security tasks. If you have security issues or concerns related to gaming, we have the answers and solutions to help you protect your data and networks.
