GiG becomes Latest To Be ISO 27001 Accredited

Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), based in Malta, has become the newest organisation to gain ISO 27001 certification for the second year in a row.

The GiG Core platform data security certification covers development, infrastructure, network configuration and related product operations for gaming services.

GiG joins Betsson Group in gaining accreditation with last month’s online gaming and betting body, also Greentube, the digital subsidiary of Novomatic and online gaming company Kindred Group have both obtained ISO 27001 certification.

In addition, the GiG team has also reached a new accreditation for their data warehouse, which is used to turn their information into reports that make business-critical decisions for consumers and internal teams.

GiG states that this accreditation “continues to demonstrate GiG is committed to providing its B2B customers with secure products they can trust, which their players can rely on”.

Richard Brown, acting chief executive officer of GiG, explained: “The accreditation continues to prove that we are committed to protecting our customers and players information. Our teams have been working round the clock to continuously improve the robust control framework we put in place last year.

“This framework not only ensures the information we hold is protected, it also means we are actively detecting and ready to react to situations which could put any of our information at risk.”

Earlier in the week, in an effort to smooth KYC at all stages of the consumer life-cycle, the igaming operator and technology provider partnered with identity verification provider HooYu.

The HooYu customer experience uses flexible UI and UX tools to enable authentication of ID documents, facial biometrics, address proofing, and also allows customers to provide information about the source of funds where appropriate.

David Pope, marketing director at HooYu, stated: “The HooYu customer journey tools are relevant not just to customer sign-up, but to all parts of the customer lifecycle, to help strike the right balance between a great customer experience and compliance with regulatory requirements.”
