Playson has obtained accreditation for its compliance measures after being granted an ISO/IEC 27001:2022 certificate.

The ISO/IEC 27001:2022 certificate is an updated version of the ISO 27001:2013 accreditation the supplier received three years ago and “is key in safeguarding sensitive information and required for Playson to hold its existing licences in valuable regulated markets”.

Vsevolod Lapin, Deputy CEO at Playson, stated: “The transition to ISO 2022 is welcome news for the business, and shows our continued dedication to compliance and regulation. Partners can rest assured of Playson’s heightened security measures and adherence to international standards with us acquiring this certificate.”

Awarded by Quinel, the accreditation recognises Playson’s alignment with the International Organisation for Standardisation standards, which the supplier says demonstrates “its ability to mitigate any information security risks whilst meeting all necessary legal and regulatory requirements”.

Updates and revisions within the 2022 version include contemporary information security risks and challenges – cloud computing, remote working and emerging technologies – as well as framework for effective information security management system implementation and management to protect sensitive information assets.

The certificate recognition also aligns with Playson’s plans over the next year to further expand across several regions, helping the supplier enter new jurisdictions.

Lapin added: “Greece, Ontario and Sweden are vital territories for Playson, with this certification also necessary for the Swiss market, and I expect the ISO 2022 to be required for more jurisdictions in the future, so this recognition has been received at a good time as we look to strengthen our global standing.”
