Kindred has confirmed its Unibet brand has received Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) – Type 2 compliance status in Ontario.
The certification is a ‘recognized leading North American standard allowing companies to demonstrate their information systems, security policies and procedures meet the highest standards of data security and operational excellence’.
The audit conducted by MNP LLP involved a ‘holistic and detailed independent assessment of Unibet’s controls and practices’, with areas such as data management, system availability and risk assessment all evaluated as part of the process.
Furthermore, MNP has concluded that all data gathered, and systems hosted by Unibet’s partner in Ontario, Pala Interactive, meets the Trust Service Criteria of security and processing integrity requirements.
Sören Thörnlund, Chief Technology Officer, Kindred, commented: “Kindred has always been driving toward exceeding industry standards for information security and privacy. By protecting our operating platform and safeguarding customer data, we provide a safe and secure commercial offering to all our markets.
“We are pleased that our SOC 2 compliance has proven our continued commitment to one of Kindred’s core values – we build on trust.”
Unibet’s entrance into the Ontario market on the April 4 launch date last year marked Kindred’s first steps into Canada, with the open regulatory model allowing the firm to launch igaming and sports betting products under one multi-product brand.
Reflecting on its recent SOC 2 certification, Amanda Brewer, Country Manager Canada, Kindred, added: “We are thrilled to announce our successful completion of SOC 2 (Type 2) audit without any reported exceptions. This achievement is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing the highest level of security to our customers.
