-- As an emerging force in the data centre market known for its power availability & award winning efficiency, Custodians accreditation now demonstrates their commitment to providing robust information security measures that preserve the integrity of their customers’ sensitive information.
The ISO 27001 audit specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System, taking into account the organisation’
s overall business risks. A neutral, independent agency conducts the audit and assesses the operation of a data centre, as well as all available applications, IT systems, processes and services provided by the organisation’
s employees and contractors. A fully independent reassessment is carried out every year, and surveillance audits which review a section of the ISMS are performed every 6 months.
"We decided not use a consultancy to achieve ISO27001, because it can become a templated box ticking exercise” explains Leonard Kay, head of business development at Custodian. We preferred to rely upon our own people, which allowed us to involve everyone & to ensure that the ethos of ISO27001 became central to the operation of our organisation"
We work very hard to excel in all areas of our business: award winning efficiency, power/network availability & genuine customer care. This accreditation is further proof that Custodian is providing a serious alternative in the colocation market.”
