nspired Entertainment announced on Thursday that the company has successfully achieved ISO 27001 certification, the world's most prestigious information security management system (ISMS) certification.
ISO 27001 was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as a technology-neutral, vendor-neutral international standard for information security. Inspired earned this certification, which is recognized worldwide, after an extensive third-party audit and evaluation of its framework to establish, implement, maintain and improve its information security at all levels.
Steve Beason, Inspired's Group Chief Technology Officer, said: "As a leader in the gaming industry providing data-based products and services, we have a commitment to provide the highest level of information protection to our global customer base. ISO 27001 is internationally recognized as the gold standard and most wide-sweeping information security accreditation and we are extremely proud to meet their standards. This certification validates that the security of our information and the data entrusted from our customers is being successfully managed and continually improved according to best practice approaches and framework."
Maintaining ISO 27001 certification requires a three-year audit cycle that will ensure that Inspired's Information Security Management System continues to meet the highest standards.
"This was a company-wide endeavor that required all-hands-on-deck during a worldwide pandemic. I am extremely grateful to the employees at Inspired for guiding the company through the certification process. Thanks to the hard work of our team, we are able to provide best-in-class information technology and security controls to our customers," Beason concluded.
