Gaming Industry

Casinos and gaming organizations are extremely high-value targets for cyber criminals due to the huge amounts of funds moving through these facilities on a daily basis. Combine this with how much technology is utilized to operate in this industry, and you have the perfect incentive for large scale & expensive data breaches. In one particular case, hackers managed to breach a casino's network via a fish tank. The tank was equipped with smart technology allowing it to connect to the internet for easier management and monitoring. However, by doing this it now became the weakest point of entry for a hacker to compromise the network. The gaming sector faces a number of challenges related to information security, including:

  • High frequency and high value cash and payment card transactions
  • Many physical and digital points of entry
  • Speed of technology development
  • Large employee workforce, many without an IT background
  • Dozens, if not hundreds of vendors operating within the facilities

The good news is that Compass IT Compliance has you covered. With a robust service offering focused on information security combined with our extensive work with gaming institutions, Compass is ready and willing to help you mitigate your risk!
