Magnum Corporation Sdn. Bhd. ("MAGNUM") was first awarded with the World Lottery Association-Security Control Standard (WLA-SCS) Certification on 4 November 2013. It is the first lottery company in Asia to be awarded with the WLA-SCS certification for its Lottery operations in Malaysia.
The WLA-SCS which also includes compliance with the ISO/IEC 27001 Standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), comprises 111 security requirements, including 90 lottery-specific security controls for lottery operators and vendors worldwide. The combined security requirements in both standards provide an effective security framework to identify, manage, and reduce security risks in the lottery operations and processes. Both the WLA-SCS and ISO/IEC 27001 standards are renewed on a three-year cycle basis.
In September 2015, Magnum successfully achieved the certification for ISO/IEC 27001:2013, an updated version of the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 standard. The much-improved 2013 version now has 114 security controls representing current best security practices. In September 2017, Magnum also successfully achieved the updated version of WLA-SCS certification, WLA-SCS:2016 which enhanced the previous version of the standard, WLA-SCS:2012 with additional 26 new sector-specific control requirements.
Compliance with the WLA-SCS shows MAGNUM’s commitment to security and integrity in operating its lottery business. It enables MAGNUM to ensure that effective security measures are in place within all the various operating units in the business. In year 2019, Magnum has again reaffirmed its continual commitment to the security and integrity of its lottery operations with the achievement in both standards for the third certification cycle.
