London City Lifeline Colo Gets ISO27001 Security Certification

City Lifeline, the central London colocation data centre, has today been awarded ISO27001 Information Security Management Certification. This accreditation confirms that City Lifeline’s security systems and processes meet the highest recognised international standards for physical security and information security.

Security, both of equipment operation and data integrity, is critical for all companies and organisations. When asked, organisations using data centre and colocation services consistently rate security as their number one priority. The internationally administered and recognised ISO27001 certification gives customers confidence that a data centre operates at the highest level of security and that it consistently delivers what it claims.

Commenting on the achievement, Roger Keenan, managing director at City Lifeline said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded the prestigious ISO27001 accreditation. Achieving ISO27001 took us over a year of hard work. All of our existing processes and procedures were reviewed and overhauled where needed and comprehensively documented. City Lifeline has always been strong on security and this new certification confirms that companies and organisations can trust and rely on us to keep their equipment and data 100 per cent secure.”

ISO27001 is an internationally recognized certification that sets out specific physical and information security standards, which must be continuously maintained by those to whom it is awarded.
