Dallas, TX, June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ Maxxsure today announces its strategic Cyber Risk collaboration with the International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA). Together the collaboration now serves organizations across the global gaming community while promoting best practices through educational initiatives for cyber risk management. Cyber Risk is increasing and complicated by the high growth of online gaming.
"We're pleased to launch our collaboration with IGSA, and we share a commitment to de-risk the global gaming industry by building upon proven education and technologies that will make the gaming industry exponentially more cyber resilient," said Shawn Wiora, CEO at Maxxsure. "Cyber-attacks and technology failures can be devastating to organizations large and small, and there has never been a better time to partner with IGSA for promoting cyber education and methodologies necessary to avoid the growing array of cyber threats."
“Cyber Risk has been rapidly increasing for a long time," explained Srik Soogoor, President at Maxxsure. “As the gaming industry expands from land-based to online venues, risk has been increasing rapidly. Working with IGSA on the standards, education and knowledge sharing is directly beneficial to the gaming industry. The multi-dimensional nature of cyber risk needs to be simplified, and this collaboration with IGSA will help hundreds of companies.”
“Maxxsure offers vast educational information and a novel approach to managing, mitigating, and transferring cyber risk," said IGSA’s VP Mark Pace. "IGSA is committed to the mission of education and helping the industry learn how to better manage cyber risk is clearly within that scope."
“As more states move to legalize online casino and sports betting, my forward-looking and visionary partners such as IGSA are connecting with Maxxsure to strategically combat the massive rise in cyber-attacks. I have received notice from many gaming companies that have already been breached and heavily impacted, there is an absolute need for preventive medicine,” said John English, President and CEO of WEBE Worldwide LLC. “This dynamic partnership will provide the industry with powerful educational options and cyber risk management tools to increase cyber responsibility and assist operators and manufacturers in keeping their customer data and their source code safe.”
This collaboration also aligns with IGSA’s mission to identify and solve through standard innovative approaches issues that the gaming industry faces such as the continuous mitigation of risk as gaming expands its online presence and launches new products and markets.
