Schellman becomes the first US based company accredited by the WLA as an approved Certification Service Entity (CSE)
TAMPA, FLORIDA - Schellman & Company is pleased to announce its approval by the World Lottery Association’s Security and Risk Management Committee (SRMC) to certify compliance with the WLA’s Security Control Standards. Schellman is the first US based company accredited by the WLA as an approved Certification Service Entity (CSE) and is now the only CSE in the world that is also a licensed CPA firm, a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor (PCI QSA) company, ISO 27001 certification body, and FedRAMP 3PAO.
The WLA Security Control Standards help provide confidence in a lottery operation. To retain the confidence of players and other stakeholders, lottery organizations need to develop and maintain a visible and documented security environment. The WLA Security Control Standard incorporates baseline requirements and controls within the organization’s overall security and risk management process – and avoids overlaps with more general security certifications. It provides lottery security professionals with a process to formally manage, update, and continuously improve its security controls.
“Schellman is well known for performing SSAE 16 examination services, formerly known as SAS 70 audits, to many of the state lotteries,” stated Jason Rhoades, Practice Leader for Schellman’s WLA SCS certification services. “As a Certification Service Entity, Schellman provides WLA members with the unique opportunity to obtain both SOC examination services and WLA SCS certification through a single provider.”
