The world of cyber-security is always evolving, attackers never rest and in today’s world of e-commerce, personal data breaches, intellectual data theft and ransomware attacks are increasingly common. Some of the most common attacks are phishing attacks, denial of service, ransomware and attacks related to web applications, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting and authorization flaws.
Responsible organizations invest heavily in protecting their digital assets as data security is of key importance for the long-term success of an organization, but all too often they simply take the security of their assets for granted.

Different countries take different approaches to making internet gambling safe. Even EU member states have many different regulations and some even prohibit online gambling altogether. Those that do allow it may match online players to their tax or healthcare identities, which are verified during the player registration process. Even if online gambling is legal, software and games must still meet the regulatory criteria to reduce the potential harm to online players. Operators of betting and casino platforms or games are monitored by national authorities that verify if their platforms, servers and operations are safe and fair. How do they do that, to keep everything correct?
SIQ makes sure that internet casinos meet the technical requirements of individual regulations. Players can therefore be sure that the game is fair, transparent and not misleading.

Most devices we use have some sort of an electrical component and different parts must coexist without affecting each other’s operation. And that is where EMC comes in. It stands for Electromagnetic Compatibility. Electronic parts must meet EMC requirements for immunity so that the product components are protected from the environment and in accordance with EMC emissions to ensure that your product is not intentionally radiating into the environment.
But how exactly does it work?
What does the testing look like?

You can find the CE marking on almost every device that you own. But what does it actually mean?
The CE on the product tells the market surveillance authorities and end-users that the product meets the essential requirements of the relevant EU directives. The CE marking is also visible proof that the manufacturer assumes liability for the conformity of the product.
After completing the conformity assessment procedure and preparing technical documentation as proof of conformity of the product, the manufacturer or their authorised representative established within the European Union is required to write an EC Declaration of Conformity. In certain cases (high-level safety risk products), the conformity assessment procedure (EC type test) must be performed by a third, independent party (notified body). The EC Declaration of Conformity is the last step the manufacturer or their authorised representative must take before the product obtains the CE marking and is placed on the market.
