Betway Demonstrates Player Friendliness

November 19, 2018

There is good news for players at Betway Casino. The holding company, Betway Ltd., has gained its ISO 27001 certificate, which is yet another indicator that the online casino takes the issue of player protection seriously. The ISO 27001 certificate is the worldwide standard for information security and demonstrates that the awardee is committed to handling customer data safely and securely. The externally accredited certification has been awarded by trusted international testing agency eCOGRA.

Betway CEO Anthony Werkman expressed his delighted at being awarded the ISO 27001 certification. He said that this demonstrated that Betway is above and beyond the bar when it comes to protecting the security of our customers’ data. The online gambling web site now fulfils many of the technical standards that are required of a United Kingdom Gambling Commission licensed operator. Following the introduction of European Union GDPR, data protection and security has become more important than ever. Betway has always been treating customers’ data with the utmost care, but has now demonstrated that it is doing so when measured against international standards. The collateral benefits accrued while preparing for this certification included helping to tighten, improve and secure third-party supplier contracts and management, as well as facilitating the process of applying for gaming licenses in new jurisdictions.

Bradley Khoury, eCOGRA Chief Technical Officer and Certified ISO 27001 Lead Auditor, also issued a statement. He said, “This certification now places Betway amongst a limited number of online gambling organizations that have achieved this prestigious certification. He added that online gambling companies are increasingly recognizing the value of the ISO 27001 certification. Many leading regulatory authorities are waiving certain security auditing requirements if the operator is ISO 27001 certified. eCOGRA is the only online gambling test laboratory that is accredited to offer ISO 27001 certification. Betway already was awarded the eCOGRA Safe & Fair seal.

Earlier this month, Betway also demonstrated is support to Responsible Gambling Week. It also operates an online sports betting site and is the official principal partner of West Ham football club. During key West Ham games, Betway launched a media blitz advocating gambling and betting on sports in a responsible manner. The same was carried out during the All-Weather horse racing sponsorship. The online casino of Betway is powered by software from Microgaming. It is licensed by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, Malta Gaming Authority and other regulatory authorities.
