Elevating Gaming Security: BMM Testlabs Achieves PCI Recognition for Enhanced iGaming Protection

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the iGaming industry, the importance of maintaining the highest standards of security and compliance cannot be overstated.

BMM Testlabs, a leading testing company, has reinforced this commitment by securing its status as a PCI Recognized Laboratory, as announced in Las Vegas on April 10, 2024. This achievement not only solidifies BMM’s role in safeguarding the payment ecosystem within the gaming sector but also showcases their pledge to provide state-of-the-art testing services that address the industry’s dynamic needs.

A Commitment to Comprehensive Security

BMM Testlabs’ accreditation to perform audits and tests in line with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a testament to its dedication to upholding the integrity of the gaming industry’s payment systems.

“As a trusted partner to the global gaming industry, we recognize the critical importance of maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance. Achieving accreditation to perform audits and tests against the PCI-DSS demonstrates our ongoing commitment to delivering unparalleled testing services that meet the evolving needs of our clients,” said Julien Pottiez, Vice President of Security Services at BMM Testlabs.

Beyond Compliance: Building Trust and Confidence

The role of PCI-DSS extends beyond mere regulatory compliance. In the words of Pottiez, “Today, the PCI-DSS standard is not only applicable to regulatory requirements, but is also proving essential in enhancing your security posture, maintaining your customers’ trust and confidence, and reducing the risk of costly data breaches.”

This perspective emphasizes the broader significance of the standard in instilling consumer confidence and fortifying the industry’s defenses against security threats.

The Scope of PCI-DSS in iGaming

PCI-DSS protocols are designed to ensure that all entities involved in processing, storing, or transmitting credit card information maintain a secure environment. This is crucial for iGaming operators, suppliers, point-of-sale systems, and retailers — essentially any organization that processes payments and handles sensitive financial data.

BMM’s comprehensive PCI-DSS solutions, including compliance assessment, penetration testing, auditing, and iGaming regulatory certification, stand as a bulwark in the protection of consumer data and the integrity of financial transactions within the gaming industry.
