INTRALOT EXPANDS ITS WLA SCS & ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION IN THE USA & AUSTRALIA
INTRALOT has been awarded the World Lottery Association Security Control Standard (WLA SCS:2012) and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for its operations in the United States of America and Victoria Australia, in line with the Group strategy to expand its certifications in various jurisdictions where the company operates.
The certifications of its US subsidiary, INTRALOT Inc., and the Australian INTRALOT Gaming Services Pty Ltd. (IGS) that operates in Victoria, cover all corporate functions of each operation, formalizing the existing management systems that control the integrity of the games and corporate conduct as a whole. INTRALOT Inc. currently supports 12 lotteries in the US, while INTRALOT Gaming Services (IGS) operates the monitoring system of 27,500 EGMs in Victoria through its iGEM electronic monitoring system.
“INTRALOT Group is an industry leader in the area of information security, contributing to the shaping of the good practices internationally”, said Mr. Nikos Nikolakopoulos, INTRALOT Group Chief Operating Officer and continued, ”Within this context we have decided to expand the WLA certification at strategic locations across the world to offer our customers the confidence they need regarding the security of the provided systems. We will retain our leading position in the security field and will remain committed to our strategy to develop products and services in compliance with the highest global security standards.”
The Chair of the WLA SRMC Mr. Thierry Pujol, commented: “Obtaining a WLA SCS:2012 certification for a lottery or a supplier in our industry represents a high-level process of security. We are now 64 lotteries and 9 suppliers certified worldwide and interest in the WLA-SCS is still increasing. INTRALOT is fully involved in its procedures to maintain transparency for its stakeholders. Respect of Integrity is the main value of our activity. Congratulations to INTRALOT!”
Mr. Jean Jorgensen, WLA Executive Director, added: “I would like to congratulate INTRALOT for the most recent certification of its US subsidiary, INTRALOT Inc., and of its Australian operation, INTRALOT Gaming Services Pty Ltd. In 2008 INTRALOT became the first lottery supplier to be certified to the WLA-SCS. Since then, INTRALOT has continued to expand the scope of their certification to include their various operations around the world. These most recent certifications demonstrate INTRALOT's firm and continuing commitment to the security and integrity of the global lottery industry.”
These certifications are complementary to the WLA SCS, ISO 27001, ISO 20000 and ISO 9001 certificates of INTRALOT Headquarters in Athens, Greece, covering the complete life cycle of system and service design, development, implementation, support and operation in a particular country. The audits were performed by TUV Nord, one of the world’s largest certification bodies which performed on-site inspections, examining the local operations.”
