Sporting Solutions secures World Lottery Association – Security Control Standard certification

Parent company Sporting Group achieves landmark security accreditation.

Sporting Group, the parent company of highly regarded B2B sportsbook services supplier Sporting Solutions, has obtainedWorld Lottery Association – Security Control Standard (WLA-SCS) certification.

The accreditation is an important milestone for the company’s extended suite of pricing and risk management services that it supplies to the lotteries sector, including several highly regarded operators, among them Danish giant Danske Spil.

The certification supports the continued development of its unique solution for highly automated Risk Adjusted Pricing, which is designed to deliver a superior player experience, improve both welfare insight and margin on turnover for operators and reduce the non-scalable operational cost pressure that its partners incur.

Simon Trim, Chief Executive of the Sporting Group, said: “We’re delighted to announce the attainment of our WLA-SCS certification during the World Lottery Summit in Argentina.

“Our longstanding partnerships with several WLA members are founded on the highest standards of trust, integrity and operational excellence. This accreditation recognises that our procedures for data and information security are among the best in a sector facing unprecedented levels of competition and regulatory & public scrutiny.”

Ed Peace, Head of Commercial at Sporting Solutions, said: “Achieving this certification is a significant milestone, and with it, our message is clear. Working in partnership with lotteries we will deliver a service that has the security and welfare of the player at its heart but reconciles this with a market leading customer experience, increased profit certainty and bottom-line growth.”

The WLA-SCS is specifically designed for the lotteries sector, awarded by an independent third party (the British Standards Institution) following a thorough audit process.

It is developed using the internationally recognised ISO/IEC 27001 framework, which helps organisations manage and protect information and data. As part of the accreditation process, Sporting Solutions was audited against the ISO/IEC 27001 and WLA-SCS standard and is now fully compliant with both.
