Andrew Cardno of Quick Custom Intelligence to Speak at the Mid-Year NIGA Conference

Quick Custom Intelligence (“QCI”) announces that Andrew Cardno, Chief Technology Officer of QCI, will be a featured speaker at the upcoming National Indian Gaming Association Mid-Year Conference & Expo taking place at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula from November 15-17. QCI is a member of the National Indian Gaming Association and is honored that Andrew has been selected to share his vast knowledge about the gaming industry at such a highly regarded event.

The topic Andrew will be addressing is: Hacking, Fraud & Ransomware: Preparing for the Inevitable. Every day a U.S. company is hacked by unknown adversaries and many Indian casinos have already been hacked. By way of example, a month ago a major casino resort in California was attacked and forced to shut down for weeks. In addition, two Idaho casinos reported system disruptions, and many more intrusions have gone unreported. As hacking and fraud targeting Indian gaming is on the rise, Andrew will share his techniques for handling information systems and protecting operations from fraudulent activity.

“Andrew is passionate and brings real energy to the show. He is passionate about the importance of protecting sovereign tribal assets. He will be challenging the inaction that is exposing tribes to cyber hackers and the dangers of opening up your digital borders to hackers and regulators. Andrew is disappointed that his many publications on this seem to have gone unnoticed and that numerous tribal operations have suffered shutdowns and massive recovery costs,” said Victor Rocha, Conference Chairman, National Indian Gaming Association.

“I am honored that I have been selected to speak at this extremely important industry event,” Andrew Cardno, CTO of QCI commented, adding, “it is necessary at this point in time to address the safety of tribal enterprises from undermining operations and to work together to share our knowledge to prevent malicious hackers from taking tribal assets.”
