Kindred’s Unibet Achieves Security Certification in Ontario

The company confirmed that its flagship brand secured Service Organization Controls 2 Type 2 compliance status for the market in Ontario, Canada

Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) is a prestigious North American certification that recognizes the efforts of companies toward security policies, procedures and their dedication to ensuring the highest standard of data safety. On Thursday, the global gaming company, Kindred Group plc, announced that its flagship brand, Unibet, secured the recognizable SOC 2 certification. The company revealed that its brand, which is currently a leading provider of sports betting and gaming services has secured SOC 2 Type 2 compliance status for the market in Ontario, Canada.

The certification follows an extensive probe that was led by MNP LLP. The auditor scrutinized and assessed Unibet’s current practices and controls. Additionally, the brand’s data management, risk assessment and access controls were also subject to evaluation. In addition to Unibet’s operations, MNP also looked into the systems and data collection of the brand’s Ontario partner, Pala Interactive. That probe, Kindred said, met the “Trust Service Criteria of security and processing integrity requirements.”

Kindred have always been driving toward exceeding industry standards for information security and privacy.
