Scientific Games’ chief administrative and compliance officer, Stephen Richardson, has been appointed to the National Technology Security Coalition’s board of directors.
With a 28-year security background including 22 years at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Richardson will help lead the strategic direction of the NTSC.
He joins a prestigious group of chief information security officers who represent a broad cross-section of enterprise companies with a vested interest in protecting the security of their customers and employees through policies that improve national cybersecurity standards and awareness.
“Steve’s experience is vast and encompasses overseeing compliance and regulatory requirements related to cybersecurity at Scientific Games and holding senior security leadership roles in the FBI,” said Patrick Gaul, executive director of the NTSC.
“He has extensive knowledge and experience with cybersecurity, cyber forensics and Homeland Security practices within the federal government and private sector.
“We are honoured to have Steve join our board and look forward to his insights about national cybersecurity policy as we continue to shape our strategy and positions.”
Based at Scientific Games’ global headquarters in Atlanta, Richardson joined the company in 2018 as chief compliance officer and was promoted to chief administrative and compliance officer in August 2021.
He has oversight responsibilities related to all aspects of information security, information technology, compliance, human resources and internal auditing for Scientific Games.
