iGaming Academy recently hosted a webinar tackling proper protocol pre, during and post audit.

Regulatory scrutiny in iGaming has tightened year on year and auditing procedures can be stressful and time intensive.

With the very real potentiality for severe financial penalties and license withdrawal, it is imperative that audits are carried out as efficiently as possible.

Our seasoned panellists discuss not just how to pass an audit, but how to excel and boost regulator relations.

Our panellists discussed:

  • Increasing European regulatory expectations
  • Pre-audit: How to prepare for success
  • During audit: Minimising business impact
  • Post-audit: Acting on recommendations

Q+A Topics:

  • What documents are requested during a compliance audit?
  • What do you do if your policies are not updated from the previous audit?
  • How do you prepare for an audit if it is next week?
  • What proof of training is required by auditors and how often should my staff be trained?
  • ISO 27001 Audits
  • What proportion of fulltime compliance professionals should you employ?
