Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has been awarded the coveted ISO 27001:2013 certification, recognising recent improvements to its Information Security Management System (ISMS).
The award covers development, infrastructure, network configuration and associated product operations for gaming services hosted on the GiG Core platform.
This accreditation means that GiG is offering its clients and players the highest specification of information security available. The certification of the firm’s ISMS gives a solid foundation to clients looking for a robust and agile security framework to protect their clients’ and players’ data.
To be awarded this certification, GiG had to be validated by an independent audit firm, which is accredited by United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS), the only national accreditation body recognised by the British government.
Throughout the process, the company demonstrated its ongoing and systematic approach to managing and protecting company and customer data. ISO 27001 is one of the few standards which uses a top-down, risk-based approach to assessment and identifies the exact requirements and specifications for the most comprehensive ISMS.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest and most trusted developer of international standards, determine world class specifications across almost every industry from technology to healthcare, and on products, services and systems to ensure the highest quality of efficiency and safety.
CEO Robin Reed said: “Receiving the ISO 27001 certification is testament to our commitment towards security, and further enforces GiG is a trusted partner for suppliers and operators partnering with GiG. Well done to all the people at GiG that work tirelessly to ensure that we can receive and maintain this level of certification.”
CCO Ben Clemes added: “It demonstrates our commitment to the continuous improvement of processes governing our GiG Core platform and safeguarding our clients and players data.
“From a commercial standpoint, it makes us stand out from the crowd even more than we did before, offering our B2B and B2C customers the best Information Security Management System which can be achieved.”
