iGaming solutions, products and services provider, Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) announced Wednesday that it has been awarded ISO 27001 re-certification for 4 of its primary products, including its platform (PAM), frontend development & CMS solution, sportsbook and data platform.
Additionally, the company has been awarded certification for its head office in Malta, and its branches in Spain and Latvia.
In passing the re-certification audit, GiG will remain certified for three more years, provided it passes its yearly surveillance audits. Regulatory bodies have started accepting ISO 27001 as an attestation to an organisation’s information security management system.
According to a statement released by the company, this certification allows GiG to “optimally and centrally evidence its certification for each platform product”. In terms of streamlining its regulatory compliance, “GiG regains its teams more time to focus on further growing its product feature portfolio, adding more value to its partners and their players”.
The company also referred to the ISO 27001 as a possibility to “smoothly onboard employees for its platform department in all three locations while firmly ensuring it is not in breach of any of the conduct rules”.
In an official press release, Diane Abela, Director of Information Security at GiG, spoke about the re-certification and said: “At GiG we continue treating digital trust as a priority, holding our information security processes and controls to a very high standard. The ISO 27001 standard demands continuous improvement, year-on-year, and obtaining our re-certification for another 3 years reaffirms our continued improvement and investment in information security towards our partners and regulators”.
ISO 27001 is one of the few standards which uses a top-down, risk-based approach to assessment and identifies the requirements and specifications for the information security management system.
