NMi laboratory gets WLA’s certification

The gaming laboratory was approved by the World Lottery Association (WLA).

UK.- NMi, the market leading compliance testing and auditing laboratory specialising in the fields of gaming and IT security, has announced its latest accreditation as an entity to carry out certification audits for World Lottery Association (WLA) members against the WLA Security Control Standards 2016 (SCS) on a global basis. In addition, numerous senior employees have gained formal recognition from the WLA as Certified Auditors.

This accreditation in the market of state-authorised lotteries, further enforces NMi’s commitment to serve its customers in lottery markets worldwide. The WLA is the global authority on the lottery business and the WLA SCS is the lottery sector’s only internationally recognised security standard, with the 2016 revisions incorporating additional lottery-specific security controls representing current best practice. WLA members have a business need to provide environments that are above reproach when it comes to security and integrity, and an audit against the SCS is an effective way of demonstrating this.

Andrew Rosewarne, NMi Gaming Director commented: “This important step for NMi demonstrates to customers our commitment to the lottery market. We expect online lottery services to be a major growth area this year and with our experience in the regulated online gaming sector and with electronic draw equipment, NMi is ready to provide the needed assurance to existing customers and those moving online.”
