The acknowledgment of NSUSLAB’s commitment to security comes courtesy of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This non-governmental organization sets internationally recognized standards across various industries. It recently awarded NSUSLAB with an ISO 27001 certificate for information security.

ISO 27001 certificate affirms security credentials

The ISO describes its 27001 certificate as proof that a company has the necessary provisions to collect and store customer data in a safe manner.

“[A 27001 certificate] specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system,” reads the ISO’s official documentation.

In real terms, the certificate is confirmation that NSUSLAB and, therefore, GGPoker is a secure site.

The online gaming industry has its own standards with regard to data privacy and security. GGPoker previously operated in so-called grey markets without national licensing systems. However, in a bid to become an industry leader, it’s obtained licenses in regulated markets, including the UK, over the last three years. This process has seen GGPoker prove that its games are random, and its software is safe.

GGPoker hasn’t suffered any major security breaches, but it’s not immune from the threats of cybercriminals. Like other major sites, including PokerStars, it’s faced DDoS attacks in recent years.

The latest attempt to overwhelm GGPoker’s servers came during the open stages of the 2020 WSOP Online. The issue was quickly fixed, but it meant two bracelet events (#32 and #33) had to be postponed.

GGPoker continues to improve

Daniel Lim, CEO of NSUSLAB Korea, believes that the ISO 27001 certificate should serve as peace of mind for players.

“We hope that the news further assures GGPoker, its players, partners, and regulators of our commitment to maintaining the security of their information,” Lim said in a May 5 press release.

Having its software provider receive an international certificate is another positive for GGPoker.

Although it’s suffered backlash in recent months due to its relationship with Dan Bilzerian and banning certain players, the site’s fortunes are on the rise. GGPoker’s average 24-hour peak is 3,000 fewer players than the industry leader, PokerStars. However, it does attract more players at certain times of the day.

By all measures, GGPoker is now regarded as a top-tier operator and the ISO certificate adds another string to its ever-expanding bow.
