Pwc To Team Up With Ecogra

Agreement will enhance vulnerability and penetration testing

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.

Announcing the agreement this week, eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge said that whilst his organisation has extensive experience in carrying out information security reviews for both online gaming operators and software suppliers, and is qualified to assess compliance against the security requirements for various European online gaming regulatory jurisdictions, it has not traditionally performed in-depth vulnerability and penetration testing.

"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, 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."

PwC has around 100 professionals specialising in cyber security advising businesses on issues ranging from threat intelligence, detection and prevention to regulation, legal matters and the broader impact of breaches on business performance including people and culture. In addition there are a further 400 professionals who support the cyber security practice and provide broader IT risk assurance services including security.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
