bet365 acquires prestigious ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification by eCogra, recognizing company's full commitment to information safety.
bet365, one of the biggest gambling operators in the UK and the world, has been awarded a prestigious ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification by eCogra, an independent auditing agency with a very strong reputation in the industry.
Recognizing bet365's Commitment to Security
According to Shaun McCallaghan, COO of eCogra, auditing bet365's entire global operation, which was required prior to issuing the certification, was no small task. It took an entire team of experts who worked across multiple locations to gather all the necessary information.
Results of all the rigorous tests and inquiries were satisfactory, proving that the company was truly committed to information security, which allowed them to join the small group of other gaming operators who were able to obtain the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Certification.
eCogra is authorized to issue these prestigious certifications because the organization received the authorization from the UK Accreditation Service after they had successfully proven their competence in performing impartial third-party audits.
Rising Demand for Increased Safety
In the press release accompanying this important announcement for bet365, McCallaghan explained that there is growing demand for these certifications in a number of regulated markets such as Spain, Denmark, Portugal, and the Czech Republic. Having this certification expedites the authorization process for online gambling businesses looking to obtain local licenses in these jurisdictions, which makes them very popular.
CEO of eCogra Andrew Beveridge extended his congratulations to bet365 and expanded on his COO's explanation, adding that the organization is fully committed to providing the full range of testing services required to obtain this prestigious ISO certification.
Being the only currently accredited organization to issue ISO/IEC 27001:2013, eCogra will have their hands full in the upcoming period. For this reason, they will be expanding their team of auditors and implementers, looking to meet the growing demand for their certification services.
As for bet365, this is another significant step for the gambling giant which is bound to open even more new opportunities for growth and expansion.
