Gain certification to keep your customers
In the growing online gaming competition, it’s paramount to tick all the boxes in security. In the end, if your customers don’t feel safe using your site, the source of revenue will eventually dry up. One way to prove to your customers and your interest. Is to show that you are taking internet security seriously and certify yourself. And this is exactly what Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) with brands like Rizk has done. In fact, this is the second year in a row that GiG receive the desirable ISO 27001 certification. Also joining in on the ISO celebration in 2019. And pleasing the international ISO Council is one of Novomatic’s subsidiary companies, Grenntube. But also one of the highest esteemed companies in the industry, Kindred Group. That housing many well-recognised brands in the UK, such as Unibet.
But what is ISO 27001
In essence, the ISO is an international set standard. More precisely how to implement and handle an information security management system (ISMS). And to complying with the set standard and obtain an approval from the ISO Council is a big accomplishment. Plus, there is more pressure from the regulatory bodies and the public. Especially how a company manages confidential and sensitive data. And the increased interest has put the subject matter in the spotlight more than ever. And nothing could be truer when it comes to the UK, and it’s demographics. Which currently ranks second in the world. Where the UK is accounting for 10 % of the certificates issued. That’s a massive 21% growth rate in the UK compared from last year. The proof is in the pudding. As more companies keep on expanding its online presence, so does the security needs.
Comments from some of the recipients
First, to comment on the success is GiG’s new acting CEO, Richard Brown. “We continue to prove that we commit to protecting our customers. But also their player information.” Then we have Michael Bauer, Greentube’s CFO/CGO. “When it comes to customer data, there are no second chances. As a company, we take every step to ensure that we adhere to international standards. Last but not least we have, Kindred Group’s CEO Henrik Tjärnström. That had this to say when they received there ISO certification. “We deal with sensitive player information. And wanted to independently verify that our business processes are best in class.” All in all, they might compete with each other, but one thing is clear. All operators and providers strive to a mutual goal. Namely to protect its customer and its data.
