Given the high penetration of intelligent electronic gaming products, there are now a myriad of data privacy and security issues faced by operators and regulators. New gaming products and services incorporate location technology within consumer smartphones, giving organizations the ability to continually gather player behavioral data and use it for personalized, targeted marketing and future product and service development. This panel will evaluate issues such as:

  • What are the hidden dangers and threats posed by this unprecedented wealth of data?
  • What regulations are in place to address these issues currently, and what else needs to be done to protect the operators and players?
  • What are best practices for dealing with a data breach event?
