Agreement will enhance vulnerability and penetration testing.
London, 14 August 2014 - The independent online gaming testing and accreditation agency eCOGRA is to widen and enhance its information security services to operator and software supplier clients in Europe following an alliance agreement with global professional services firm PwC.
"This agreement enables us to extend this service to our clients through the specialised and highly effective expertise of PwC in this area," he said.
"We understand the value of our clients’ investment in information security, and by collaborating with PwC in this area, our customers will have increased access to the latest knowledge on emerging risks relating to current levels of security protection."
PwC worked extensively with eCOGRA when the organisation was launched in 2003, Beveridge said, adding "We are now very pleased to be collaborating with PwC again in this capacity.”
Founded in 2003 to set and improve operational standards and player safety in the online gaming space, eCOGRA has amassed a wealth of experience in implementing international best practice standards and requirements and ensuring these are maintained through regular review and monitoring.
