SportyBet Invests In Cybersecurity After Recent Failed Attack


SportyBet Invests In Cybersecurity After Recent Failed Attack

SportyBet has been investing and working relentlessly to combat cybercrime for many years, and it has now stated that it will invest even more in artificial intelligence and other critical technologies to identify and bring fraudsters to court.

SportyBet’s resolve was only increased after learning of a false and defamatory claim of “unpaid winnings” published by certain media outlets without giving SportyBet the opportunity to reply or rebut the claim.

This specific claim refers to 42 accounts that were blocked from further activity after being detected and validated as being used abusively by an international cybercrime syndicate using bot technology at the same time.

It is critical to notice that all 42 accounts have the same foreign IP addresses and have repeatedly attempted to submit similar or identical illegal automated bets with phoney odds that SportyBet has not published.

SportyBet promptly reported these accounts to the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and an investigation into these accounts and the individuals involved is currently underway.

As the inquiry progresses, it is clear that the criminals are seeking to use the media to create a smear campaign against SportyBet.

As a result, SportyBet is exploring legal action against these hostile actors and any collaborators who helped ruin the company’s hard-earned name and goodwill.

SportyBet wants to strengthen its security mechanisms, enhance existing user verification processes, and apply cutting-edge technologies to detect and prevent any additional exploitation of its platform.

SportyBet’s dedication to upholding the integrity of its services and protecting the interests of its customers is unshakable.

SportyBet is a globally recognised sports betting brand that operates in several countries and continents, services millions of customers worldwide, and has been a regulated and well-known online sports betting operator in Nigeria for over 12 years.

SportyBet is confident in the continuous faith of its loyal customers and the general public.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.

“A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.”
