US – Tania Johannisson to talk at World Game Protection Conference

By - 9 November 2015

Tania Johannisson, Head of Game Integrity & Risk at Evolution Gaming, has been selected to speak at the World Game Protection Conference on February 22 to 24.

The event, to be held at M Resort in Las Vegas, is billed as “the biggest casino surveillance event of the year” brings together prominent Casino and iGaming industry figures in a three-day expo and speaker program.

Johannisson’s session, at 14:00 on Day 2 (‘Big Picture Day’), Tuesday 23 February 2016, is entitled, ‘What Online Live Dealer Casinos Can Teach Us About Game Protection’.

This session will explore key areas including high risk and targeted areas in an online Live Casino environment as well as automated surveillance for detecting abnormal betting strategies that may indicate cheating, collusion and advantage play, amongst other things.

According to Ms Johannisson: “Approaching Game Protection from an online Live Casino angle will, I believe, provide unique insights and a perspective perhaps not explored in previous conferences. Every player we serve – whether wholly genuine or potentially fraudulent – interacts with our system via some kind of computing device, so it’s critical that our systems are fully monitored and protected 24/7 by the best surveillance practices and software available. Also, the sheer number of concurrent players playing at any given time on our 130-plus tables makes it even more critical that we have the highest levels of automated cyber security in place in order to stay more than one step ahead of the cyber criminal.”
