Time and time again, we’ve discovered General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) failures in mobile game apps, despite games companies working through GDPR in great detail and believing that they are compliant with global privacy laws.
These failures, which can include Software Developer Kits (SDKs) and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and possible data breaches, have the potential to disclose personal information and player metrics that might identify a player without their consent
They are embedded in the app’s code and may be missed unless a thorough detection process has been conducted. These types of issues and misalignments can also create serious problems for organisations.
Greater awareness of data management can help video game developers and publishers reduce the likelihood of breach and loss by ensuring that the right cyber-security measures are in place.
This, in turn, can engender greater trust between studios and their players.
At Keywords Studios, we understand that GDPR alignment is an imperative in the video games industry.
Greater understanding of data management and protection regulations and their implications can help video game developers and publishers reduce the likelihood of data breaches.
