Autotote Takes Further Action to Enhance Security

Autotote will undergo additional changes to help ensure security of its tote system in the wake of the Breeders' Cup Ultra Pick 6 probe.

Within 30 days, Autotote plans to enlist independent third-party control systems for all of its pari-mutuel facilities in the United States. Autotote has also added Kroll Inc., a leading risk mitigation and security company, to conduct a review of the company's risk profile. The review will include Autotote's information technology, physical security, operational controls, hiring practices, and internal compliance.

Autotote has also created the new position of chief security officer, who will report directly to chairman and chief executive officer Lorne Weil.
