CPAs & Associates 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.
BrightLine 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

overlaps with more general security certifications. It provides lottery
security professionals with a process to formally manage, update, and
continuously improve its security controls.
