East Coast Gaming Congress To Address Cyber Security & Compliance

Thursday, May 28th

Atlantic City, N.J. — May 19, 2015 — A new panel added to the lineup of the 19th Annual East Coast Gaming Congress will address the growing threat of cyber attacks in the context of online gaming. The Cybersecurity & Compliance panel will take place from 10:40 a.m. to 11:55 a.m. on Thursday, May 28 in Studio 1 at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. The East Coast Gaming Congress, featuring the iGaming Institute, is being held May 27-28, 2015 at that location.

Online gambling providers experienced an unprecedented number of adverse cyber events in 2014, according to ECGC organizers. Industry leaders will discuss whether these are growing pains of online gaming, or a new frontier of casino risks. The panel will present a framework on avoidance and mitigation strategies against tomorrow’s digital adversaries.

Williams Hughes, Esq., partner, Cooper Levenson Attorneys at Law, will serve as moderator for the panel. Speakers will include Tom Brennan, president, NYC Metro Chapter, Open Web Application Security Project; Anthony Mongeluzo, president, Pro Computer Services; Michael Nelson, partner, DFDR Consulting; and David Weinstein, deputy director/cybersecurity advisor, New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness.

Deputy Director Weinstein is New Jersey's first Cybersecurity Advisor. He has been recognized by Forbes magazine as a “top cyber-policy expert” and his analysis and commentary have been featured in numerous media and academic publications, including the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs, the US Naval Institute’s Proceedings, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, CNN.com, and The Boston Globe.

The East Coast Gaming Congress brings together key opinion leaders and stakeholders in gaming, from policymakers to legislators, gaming operators, advisors and suppliers.
