Debates have been heated at the Combating Cybercrime in Betting and Gaming conference. The head of regulatory compliance at PartyGaming, Leon Thomas, said that a “comply or die” attitude must be adopted in the industry. Other operators highlighted that affiliate fraud had become a key issue for operators to tackle.

A speaker from law firm Peters &Peters stated that the exclusion of certain groups and nationalities out of stereotyping would be ineffective and be seen as undignified. A similar point was made by the group security officer of Unibet who said a balance was required to be able to remove bad customers without accidentally removing the good customers.

The head of digital forensics at the Serious Fraud Office teamed up with Detective Inspector Mark Davis from the Metropolitan Police computer crime unit to highlight that operators should be comfortable contacting the police and getting assistance, promising “we are very discreet”.
