eCOGRA authorised to offer accredited ISO/IEC 27001 certifications.


The UK headquartered online gambling giant bet365, has become the first enterprise to be certified by the accredited testing laboratory eCOGRA for compliance with the important International Standards Organisation ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management Systems. The internet gambling group is one of the world’s largest with geographically dispersed operations.

Shaun McCallaghan, Chief Operating Officer at eCOGRA, said that the size and international scope of bet365 operations presented his auditing teams with a significant task, which involved a lengthy and rigorous certification audit across multiple locations. bet365 demonstrated notable commitment to information security and are positioned amongst a handful of online gambling operators that have achieved the prestigious certification.

“It is evident that online gambling regulators are already moving towards requiring license holders and their service providers to obtain ISO/IEC 27001 certification, and jurisdictions such as Czech Republic, Denmark, Great Britain, Portugal, Romania and Spain currently waive certain security auditing requirements if the relevant parties are ISO/IEC 27001 certified, expediting the process and opening up a faster route to market for operators.”

eCOGRA Chief Executive Officer Andrew Beveridge congratulated bet365 on achieving the certification and complimented the group on its commitment and cooperation throughout the demanding process of certification.

“eCOGRA is absolutely committed to ensuring it can provide authorised and approved independent testing facilities in all its clients’ desired licensing jurisdictions, and aims to provide a full suite of compliance services, including ISO/IEC 27001 certification, vulnerability and penetration testing, and alternative dispute resolution (ADR), along with typical platform and games certification work,” he said.
