All Bets on Better Surveillance

Despite an atmosphere of fun and games, running a casino is serious business. If you operate a chain of gaming sites, your need for vigilance increases proportionally. With the popularity of Native American-run casinos on the rise, the Choctaw Nation, which owns a number of casinos in southeastern Oklahoma, has taken advantage of this momentum to build new facilities and renovate its older locations. Given the increased traffic to its casinos, security is ramping up surveillance to protect its high-stakes operations.

Big Business

Behind all the glamour and glitz, casinos are a lot like other businesses, yet they face a number of unique challenges. Casinos are required to adhere to numerous regulations and must secure their assets without causing inconvenience to customers. Casinos must protect against physical heists, but just as important, if not more so, casinos must protect their networks. Although it may not play as well on the big screen, a network breach could cost millions of dollars.
