ISO 27001 is one of the few standards which uses a top-down, risk-based approach to assessment and identifies the requirements and specifications for the most comprehensive information security management system (ISMS).
In passing the re-certification audit this year, GiG will, subject to a yearly surveillance audit, remain certified for a further three years.
Regulatory bodies have started accepting ISO 27001 as an attestation to an organisation’s information security management system. This allows GiG to optimally and centrally evidence its dedication to information security, through its ISO 27001 certification for each platform product.
In streamlining its regulatory compliance, GiG regains its teams more time to focus on further growing its product feature portfolio, adding more value to its partners and their players. In addition, having the certification in its office locations, allows GiG to smoothly onboard employees for its platform department in all three locations while firmly ensuring it’s not in breach of any of the conduct rules of the ISO certification.
Diane Abela, Director of Information Security at GiG, said: “At GiG we continue treating digital trust as a priority, holding our information security processes and controls to a very high standard.”
“The ISO 27001 standard demands continuous improvement, year-on-year, and obtaining our re-certification for another 3 years reaffirms our continued improvement and investment in information security towards our partners and regulators,” Abela added.
