Gaming Laboratories International (GLI)’s Global Professional Services Division Completes Security Audit for the California State Lottery™
GLI was engaged to provide a highly important security audit to meet the lottery’s biennial regulatory security requirements. The audit was performed against lottery industry leading standards, namely the World Lottery Association Security Control Standard (WLA SCS) and the ISO 27001 Information Security Management Standard.
GLI’s Global Professional Services division is the first North American-based organization accredited to provide lotteries with WLA SCS certification audit services.
California State Lottery Chief Internal Audit Executive Roberto Zavala said, “GLI’s Security Audit went very well, was very professional, and was quite educational for me and others on my staff. The report to the Executive and the Commission was very well received and provided the roadmap and benchmarking necessary for improvements to move towards World Lottery Association Security Certification.”
GLI’s Global Professional Services division offers a wide range of information security services to gaming and non-gaming companies ranging from audits and training, to the application of new processes and ultimately certifications.
“Lotteries are public organizations, and as such, the trust of players, governments, auditors and industry regulators is paramount. Taking the steps required to validate the information security process proves that a lottery has taken steps to proactively mitigate the probability and negative impact of damaging security incidents, helping to safeguard that trust,” said Director of GLI’s Global Professional Services Division Greg Doucette.
