Gaming content developer Play’n Go has been awarded ISO 27001 certification, an international information safety standard.
Once this certification has been awarded, Play’n Go can now guarantee customers that they comply with national and international regulations (such as GDPR), which in turn minimises the risk of expensive penalties and fines.
It also offers clients peace of mind in the knowledge that their protection and compliance are taken very seriously by the organisation.
Safety and GDPR manager Cedric Mallia addressed the most recent certification: “ISO 27001 is a testament to our commitment to our client’s security and well being in the industry. ISO 27001 it is not a mandatory standard, but we are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that we are giving our customers more.
“It shows we are continuing to build a solid security foundation based upon international standards and best practice, and taking appropriate control measures to protect confidential and privileged information. Clients know they are in the best hands with us.”
In an industry where data and information security is of paramount importance, those who follow the ISO 27001 standard will give their customers the trust and safe assurance that they have taken the requisite controls regarding the safety of their data.
The ISO 27001, described as ‘a lifestyle that empowers a business to improve its overall information security posture’, is awarded to businesses that adopt an information security management system that takes people, processes, and systems into account.
For organisations which aim to achieve this certification, a formal risk management framework and process is also required.
