Gaming Security

SeNet’s focus and knowledge on Gaming makes us the only information security firm that specializes in Gaming and iGaming.  Over the past four years we have turned our attention to the gaming and iGaming industry, largely in part due to the research and interest of SeNet's Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Mr. Gus Fritschie. Mr. Fritschie has performed extensive research on online gaming security, presented at multiple computer industry conferences such as DefCon on this subject and written articles for both print and on-line publications. Based on the efforts of our CTO, SeNet has established a new line of business focusing on this emerging and growing area. We have assembled a team that not only has more than a decade of proven information security expertise as a company, but also a strong understanding of the traditional gaming industry and the emerging iGaming market. 

Over a fairly short period 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 those that have never had a vulnerability assessment conducted before.

Our experience in gaming covers traditional land-based casinos, iGaming and daily fantasy sports sites, lotteries, and tribal gaming.  Some of our customers include Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, North Carolina Lottery, Multi‑State Lottery Association, Spirit Mountain Casino, Rush Street Gaming, Pala Interactive, Star Fantasy Leagues, and Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort.

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 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.
