Securance advises TelecityGroup


TelecityGroup is Europe’s leading carrier-neutral data centre provider. TelecityGroup’s data centres offer high connectivity and secure environments for IT and telecom equipment, which are the driving force behind the digital economy. Telecity has data centre clusters in 12 major European cities. In Telecity’s data centres, the networks that make up the Internet converge, and bandwidth-intensive applications, content, and information are securely hosted. Telecity’s newest 9MW data centre, AMS 5, located in Amsterdam South-East, provides not only robust power supply, efficient cooling, and extensive security but also unparalleled connectivity. Besides connectivity, security and control are crucial for data centres. There are several standards for this, with ISAE 3402 being one of the most important.

 

ISAE 3402 and Data Centres

As of December 2014, the COSO framework has been replaced by COSO2013. De Nederlandsche Bank has mandated CObit 4.1 and its maturity model in the information security assessment framework. Due to these developments, multinationals are increasingly demanding ISAE 3402 from hosting providers, in addition to SaaS providers. This trend is supported by the increase in the number of registered data centres in the ISAE 3402 register from 3 to 10 within one year. Securance will support and advise Telecity in the implementation of ISAE 3402.

Telecity and Securance

Emile ten Hoor is delighted that Securance has been selected as the assurance and security advisor for the Telecity Group. Within our current portfolio of asset managers, SaaS, and hosting providers, the Telecity Group is a welcome addition. We are highly motivated and enthusiastic to support Telecity in this process. We support every step towards professionalization and strive for better security and control in the ICT sector.
