Privacy for Gambling

Improving privacy management in gambling


Difficulty with acting compliant

The gambling market has changed drastically over the past two decades, due to the rise of online gambling and changing laws and regulations. More and more personal data is being processed in a complex ecosystem. The dangers of unauthorized use of this (personal) data are great and insufficient focus on (cyber) security can lead to major risks. This certainly applies to gambling companies that are under strict supervision of gambling authorities. Compliance with privacy and data protection regulations is therefore essential, but also a challenge because many gambling companies operate internationally and have to deal with a wide diversity of legislations and regulators. This makes it difficult to determine how to act compliantly.

Knowledge and awareness

An adequate design for data privacy and data protection requires privacy expertise, industry knowledge, a specialized approach, focus and structure. Companies in the gambling market are realizing more and more that privacy and security are an indispensable part of their daily work and that, in addition to a project-based approach, a sustainable organization within the business processes is needed. Privacy management goes much further than just complying with the rules of the GDPR. Many companies in the gambling market have difficulty organizing online and offline services that are GDPR-compliant, or see privacy legislation as an extra hurdle that makes their work more difficult. This requires an approach with a lot of attention for knowledge and awareness.
