“The 5th annual World Game Protection Conference will provide attendees vital information and insight into running and maintaining a successful business in the casino industry,” says Willy Allison, founder of World Game Protection and the World Game Protection Conference. “I am honored to have Kevin Mitnick present the conference’s keynote presentation, and to welcome all the other industry insiders and professionals presenting at and attending this event.”
The World Game Protection Conference (http://www.worldgameprotection.com/conference/) is a three-day international casino conference and exhibition dedicated entirely to casino surveillance and game protection. Among other topics, subjects to be highlighted during the conference include the latest casino scams and casino surveillance best practices. Experts and industry leaders will be on hand to share their professional insight into the issues that affect the industry, as well as share the latest state-of-the-art surveillance technology available today.
Kevin Mitnick, a legend among hackers, will present the conference’s keynote presentation, “The Art of Intrusion.” Considered an authority on preventing security breaches, Mitnick will share how hackers ply their trade and offer concrete and actionable guidance to help casino managers and security personnel strengthen their defenses. Through two casino-specific case studies, he’ll reveal the hair-raising details of a real-life social engineering scam and computer break-ins, how the perpetrators hacked in and how they successfully covered their tracks. More importantly, Mitnick will share how surveillance managers, gaming operations managers and other attendees can prevent these horror stories from being repeated in their organizations. In addition, attendees will learn cost-effective counter measures and indispensable tips for bringing everyone in an organization on-board to offer maximum protection.
In addition to “The Art of Intrusion,” further sessions of importance to casino general managers/CEOs, tribal commissioners and others in the casino industry will be presented. Darwin Ortiz, one of the world’s leading sleight-of-hand experts, will demonstrate some of the “magic” of crooked gamblers in the session “The Ultimate Card Shark.” Tips and tricks for lie detection, an important tool when used against both suspected criminals and employees will be discussed in “How to Spot a Lie,” presented by “The Lie Guy” Stan Walters, one of the country’s foremost experts on lie detection. Business leaders will also learn the importance of humor as a tool in “Leadership: the Tao of Humor,” presented by Tim Gard.
The World Game Protection Conference will serve as a casino surveillance networking mecca, and will provide the information and technologies critical for all those involved in the casino industry, including surveillance managers, gaming operations managers, general managers/CEOs, tribal commissioners, regulators and internal auditors and investigators.
