As an organiza on that has grown exponen ally over the years, including changes in infrastructure, staff and technology; ensuring that their overall security posture allows them to adhere to compliance mandates and is able to address today's and adapt to tomorrow's moun ng security threats, was at the forefront of their IT endeavors. However, Gila River lacked the resources and exper se to dedicate to the development and implementa on of a tailored security strategy that complies with their regulatory requirements. They turned to OneNeck, a longstanding partner of over 20 years, to help address their security needs. "We needed a resource with the breadth and depth of experience to help Gila River evolve our overall security posture, adopt more effec ve security policies, and provide ongoing training to my IT Teams," said Chris Bolton, Chief Informa on Officer at Gila River Hotels & Casinos.
