Gaming content developer Play’n Go has been granted the ISO 27001 certification, an international standard in information security.

Having been awarded this certification, Play’n Go can now guarantee customers they are compliant with national and international regulations (such as GDPR), which in turn minimises the risk of costly penalties and fines. 

It also grants clients peace of mind in the knowledge that the organisation takes their security and compliance very seriously.

Cedric Mallia, security and GDPR manager, discussed the latest certification: “ISO 27001 is a testament to our commitment to our client’s security and well being in the industry. ISO 27001 it is not a mandatory standard, but we are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that we are giving our customers more. 

“It shows we are continuing to build a solid security foundation based upon international standards and best practice, and taking appropriate control measures to protect confidential and privileged information. Clients know they are in the best hands with us.”

In an industry where the protection of data and information is of paramount importance, those meeting the ISO 27001 standard can give their clients the confidence and secure knowledge that the necessary controls have been adopted in regards to the protection of their data.

The ISO 27001, which is described as ‘a lifestyle that empowers a business to improve its overall information security posture, is awarded to companies that adopt an information security management system that takes into consideration people, processes and systems.

A  formal risk management framework and process is also required for organisations who aim to achieve this certification.
