Abstract

Security and integrity are the corner stone of a well-succeeded operation in gaming industry. It is the same for the particular case of state lotteries operation that have in the consumers´ liability the propelling force to it survives along the years. In that direction, we propose to analyze the concreate case of Brazilian state lottery (Loteria Federal) - in a operation for more than 55 years inside a bank – that in 2012 was certified by the World Lottery Association (WLA), a certification that has its bases in risk analysis as a mechanism to point out the mitigation of weaknesses and to establish safeguards in an operation of lottery. The WLA certification covers information security management baseline incorporating ISO/IEC 27001:2013, a leading international standard for information security management, with additional lottery-specific security controls representing current best practice for state lotteries around the globe.
