Usually in this space I relay my observations on news and events that impact the gaming industry as a whole. This time around, I’d like to turn this focus inward and discuss some recent improvements to a couple of Casino Journal products.
The gaming industry has long been known for its Fort Knox-level security. But casinos and online gaming operators are clear targets of cyber attackers, and the extensive, best-in-class preventative security measures of years past only go so far.
A gaming operation could spend a billion dollars to deter an attack, but without effective internal defenses and a comprehensive, well-rehearsed plan outlining clear attack remediation and recovery steps, operators will find themselves exposed and unprepared when an incident occurs.
In the hundreds of casinos we have been privileged to work with, there hasn’t been one that didn’t have significant support for several charitable endeavors. And interestingly, most tend not to “toot their horn” very much about this philanthropy.
To become more data-driven is the stated goal of many gaming operators around the world, but the table game space continues to play catch-up with slots. Things aren’t nearly as bad as they used to be though.
