Online betting and gaming organisation Betsson Group has become the latest firm to be credited with the ISO 27001 certification, an international standard for implementing an information security management system.

Betsson has stressed a commitment to security as “an ongoing process,” emphasising that the firm is to “continue working hard” to maintain and exceed ISO standards to protect both company and customer data.

In recent months Greentube, Novomatic’s interactive division, and online gaming operator Kindred Group have also both achieved ISO 27001 certification, as Betsson followed the lead to show it’s duty to follow the highest standards in data security of its online gaming platforms.

The accreditation was granted following a rigorous audit of every level of the organisation by the independent trusted international testing agency, ACM – a leading UKAS-accredited certification body in the UK.

The certification, highly regarded by regulators and licensing bodies, is to facilitate Betsson’s processes when applying for new gaming licenses, with it also detailed that an external audit will be performed on a yearly basis to ascertain continuous compliance.

Jesper Svensson, CEO for Betsson operations, commented: “This accreditation affirms our ongoing vigilance for protecting our customers’ and clients’ data and that all our processes across the organisation meet or exceed the ISO standards. 

“I am proud of the many talented people at Betsson Group who work around the clock in providing a secure and reliable service to our customers, for achieving this recognition.”

Last month Betsson recruited Malta headquartered Gaming Innovation Group to increase is marketing compliance efforts. 

GiG signed an agreement with the Swedish firm for its marketing compliance screening tool GiG Comply, which comes after both parties reported a Nordic struggle in the latest wave of financial reports.

In signing with the firm Betsson will strengthen its control over third-party advertising and protect their brands from being promoted on websites which are not brand-safe or compliant, enabling the group to add an additional layer to their compliance efforts
