Reuven Aronashvili, CYE CEO and Founder, presents three common mistakes that security leaders in the online gaming and gambling companies are making.

The session is part of a live webinar that took place on February 18, 2021, in collaboration with The Israel Trade Office in South Africa, Gaming for Africa, and the Israeli Export Institute.

What is it?

The session walks through the biggest mistakes that online gaming and gambling CISOs are making, taking average situations and trying to identify what the most common attack routes are to demonstrate what – as an offensive group – they would do in order to target those business critical assets of those gambling or gaming organisations.

He elaborates on the following points:

  1. Over-focusing on the “front gates”, while neglecting other critical assets.
  2. Prioritising risks without business contact (case study)
  3. Confusing technology investments with cybersecurity maturity

What is being said?

Talking on the over-focusing on the “front gates”, while neglecting other critical assets  Aronashvili stated: “While we see a very significant gap between the cybersecurity level of those gateways when it compares to the internal organisation or the security of the rest of the organisation that can be also of course a way into the organisation. 

“More in depth, when we talk about the ever-evolving threat there are multiple ways for attackers to try and get access into the organisations from things that are considered to be very complicated and complex from an offensive point of view. Two things that are very simple like misconfiguration and things and just direct unauthenticated access to different interfaces.

“In general we say that organisations are trying to tailor different security solutions, trying to cover those specific threats, making sure that those threats will not be affected or efficient against those organisations.

“However between the cracks there are a lot of things that are being missed. Those specific user cases, those specific misconfigurations, the specific vulnerabilities that are missed are then being leveraged in order to create the attack story against the organisations.”
