Evolution Gaming first to achieve latest ISO 27001 global standard

Evolution Gaming, the world leader in video-streamed Live Dealer gaming, has become the first company in Latvia to be awarded ISO 27001:2013, the latest ISO certification for information security management.

Whilst Evolution provides Live Casino services to leading gaming brands and their players throughout Europe and beyond, the company’s primary broadcast studios, development and core IT infrastructure are located in Riga, the Latvian capital.

The global ISO 27001:2013 standard confirms that Evolution’s information security management system meets ISO’s exacting specification and that all licensee and player information is secured and managed to the highest standards.

Jesper von Bahr, Chief Legal & Risk Officer at Evolution, said, “We are delighted to have achieved this latest ISO certification, not least because it gives Evolution considerable additional creditability in the Live Casino marketplace, where security, fraud prevention and trust are paramount. ISO 27001:2013 compliance gives our licensees full confidence that we consistently and proactively identify risks and put in place the controls necessary to manage and minimise those risks.

“The award confirms that our rigorous approach to information management, security and compliance is based on the latest best practices, controls and industry standards, and it underlines our status as the leader in the online Live Casino sector,” added von Bahr.

Harijs Bernans, the independent accreditor who conducted the ISO audit at Evolution Latvia, commented: “Evolution Gaming operates in a strictly regulated and supervised business field. ISO 27001:2013 certification is a significant acknowledgment that the company has successfully structured its processes into a system that ensures confidentiality, integrity and accessibility of core business information pursuant to the requirements of regulators, applicable laws and business needs.”

The accreditor added that, “During the auditing process Evolution Gaming presented a well-developed KPI system and metrics process that ensures provision of well controlled quality services to its customers.”
