New security measures announced by Autotote

From Staff Reports

Autotote Systems Inc., the Delaware company that fired an employee for allegedly tapping into its computer system during the Breeders' Cup races and fixing a Pick Six wager worth $3 million, yesterday announced several precautions to tighten security.

The steps include enhanced computer protection, the hiring of a chief security officer and the implementation of an alarm system comparable to "the shrink-wrap on medicine bottles," an Autotote spokesman said.
