Playson has achieved ISO 27001 information security management accreditation, demonstrating a “strong commitment to information security,” according to the casino games and software provider.
Following an audit by a Quinel Limited laboratory, Playson was awarded the accreditation, recognising the supplier’s complete compliance with the International Organisation for Standardisation’s data protection standards.
The certification, which covers the creation, integration, and maintenance of multi-gaming software, helps Playson to expand its operator network while also showing the security of its operations to partners.
Playson has been expanding its worldwide reach in recent weeks and months by securing major strategic agreements in a variety of regulated areas across Europe and Latin America.
Compliance and data protection
Oleksandr Kryzhanivskyi, head of engineering at Playson said: “Receiving an ISO 27001 certification showcases our unwavering commitment to regulatory compliance and data protection.
“A key step on the path to continued global expansion, we are pleased to see the team’s diligence recognised with such a coveted accreditation.”
Lottoland elaborated on its ISO 27001 certification earlier this year, saying that it requires management to systematically examine the organisation’s information security risks, taking into account threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts; and to implement an overarching process to ensure that information security controls continue to meet the organization’s needs on an ongoing basis.
It further stated that to handle those risks that are judged unacceptable, it must design and implement a cohesive and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other types of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer).
