The international data center operator maincubes is working on attaining ISO 27001 certification for the two data center locations Schiphol (Amsterdam) and Rhine/Main. ISO 27001 – 2013 is based on active management of information security, and the first certification should be completed within the coming months.
“The ISO 27001 certification is an elementary component of our premium claim. We are going through the elaborate certification process not only because the market and other standardizations require it. For us, it is also important to work together with our customers with the highest possible level of information security right from the beginning, thereby distinguishing ourselves considerably from many competitors on the international market,” Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes, explains as the motivation for the ISO 27001 certification.
Thanks to ISO 27001, customers benefit from a structured working method right at the beginning of their work together with maincubes. ISO 27001 creates a systematic approach that protects confidential data, guarantees processes, ensures the integrity of operational data, and increases the availability of IT systems. One central aspect of ISO 27001 is the risk analysis that is used to recognize risks in the first step, evaluate them in the second step, and minimize them in an additional step. An additional important advantage of working with an ISO 27001-certified data center operator is compliance. Availability, confidentiality, and integrity are guaranteed by the norm, and not only in maincubes’ internal processes. Customers can rely on the fact that the work performed at all locations today and in the future, including the areas of infrastructure and services, will be performed at the highest level of security because of the certification. All tasks customers transfer to maincubes can be tracked through a mutually agreed-upon change management process. It can be used to fulfill the key requirements of auditors and valid regulations like Basel II at companies, for instance.
