The software used by the fastest growing online poker site GGPoker has been officially certified as securely managing information assets. Software provider NSUSLAB Korea has been granted the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 certification for its online gaming platform.
“NSUSLAB is proud to have secured this ISO 27001 certification, as we have always placed information security at the forefront of our efforts,” said Daniel Lim, CEO of NSUSLAB Korea in the official press release. “We hope that the news further assures GGPoker, its players, partners and regulators of our commitment to maintaining the security of their information,” Lim added.
In a nutshell, ISO27001 is globally recognized as standard for managing risks with regards to the security of information held by an organization. It provides standardized rules and requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard provides companies with the know-how to protect its most valuable information.
The three main aspects of information are protected by the ISO 27001 standard: – Confidentiality: only authorized persons have the right to access information. – Integrity: only authorized persons can change the information. – Availability: the information must be accessible to authorized persons whenever it is needed.
For companies and individuals alike, the standard represents an important step towards a safer business environment. This is achieved by systematically implementing vital security controls. It may even be required to comply with ever-increasing legal requirements all over the world and streamlines the processes and procedures within the company to safeguard crucial information. By preventing security incidents from happening, costly consequences and negative publicity are avoided.
Companies can also get certified against ISO 27001 as an additional proof to all its customers and partners that safeguarding their data is of utmost importance. Likewise, individuals can attend a course and pass the respective exam to get ISO 27001-certified, boosting their business opportunities.
