NSUSLAB Korea, parent company of GGPoker, announced a new certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) this week. The company received ISO 27001 certification for its online gaming platform.
The distinction outlines a framework of “policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical, and technical controls involved in an organization’s information risk management processes,” according to TechTarget.com.
Company officials said the certification signals GG’s dedication to safety and security on the platform.
“NSUSLAB is proud to have secured this ISO 27001 certification, as we have always placed information security at the forefront of our efforts,” NSUSLAB CEO Daniel Lim said in a news release.
“We hope that the news further assures GGPoker, its players, partners, and regulators of our commitment to maintaining the security of their information.”
Details on the GGPoker certification
ISO 27001 is an international standard recognized globally for managing risks to the security of organization’s information. The process provides a set of standardized requirements for securely managing information.
With poker sites hosting thousands of players and maintaining their information funds, security is of top importance in the industry.
NSUSLAB Korea’s software powers GGPoker, which hosts hundreds of thousands of players and games each week. The company operates in a number of regulated markets.
Beyond poker, NSUSLAB also produces omni-channel online casino table games, proprietary gaming platforms, and business intelligence systems. The company boasts more than 200 developers.
The site is licensed by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission.
