Online casino operator Rootz has been granted an ISO 27001 as it passed the International Organization for Standardization’s audit.
The gaining of the ISO is said to be an “important milestone” in the company’s first step towards obtaining a full igaming licence that would permit Rootz to offer its services to players based in Germany.
ISO 27001, in particular, sets out practices for an information security management system by adopting a risk-based approach to information security, and is a requirement of all prospective igaming operators hoping to enter the German market.
Lasse Rantala, Rootz CEO, stated: “I am particularly pleased with the commitment and hard work shown by Rootz employees in the face of such challenging times, demonstrated at all points throughout the certification process.
“The audit certification lays the foundations for entering additional jurisdictions and as such we are well-positioned for further international expansion. Together we eagerly look forward to the next exciting chapter in the Rootz story.
“It goes without saying that information security is of paramount importance in our increasingly digitised world and we welcome the move towards a fully regulated global igaming environment.”
It comes following months of alleged toil behind the scenes at Rootz HQ where employees are said to have “invested long hours to meet all regulatory requirements within an extremely tight time-frame”.
Further audit requests are expected to be processed in the coming months with a view to entering additional white-listed igaming markets, as the firm looks to solidify its place as a major player on the international stage.
Moreover, Spinz Casino is expected to be launched at some point in Q1 2022 with a focus on providing live streaming content that aims to “reimagine a proven industry concept’.
