TelecityGroup Netherlands

realises ISAE 3402 certification


Amsterdam, 19 May 2015 – All TelecityGroup locations in Amsterdam have been certified according to the international outsourcing standard ISAE 3402. With this certification, TelecityGroup Netherlands demonstrates that its data centres meet internationally accepted quality and security standards. For customers, this certification provides proof that their outsourced processes are effectively controlled within the data centre.

Secure Data Centres

The certification indicates that the processes in TelecityGroup’s data centres comply with the security requirements of the internationally recognised ISAE 3402 (International Standard for Assurance Engagements). TelecityGroup customers who have placed their IT equipment in one or more data centres in Amsterdam can use the ISAE 3402 report to demonstrate that security processes within the data centre are in order. “Many companies using our data centre services want transparency on how we, as a service organisation, ensure the quality and security of our data centres,” says Alexandra Schless, Vice President Western Europe & Managing Director at TelecityGroup Netherlands.

Different Types

Securance has implemented ISAE at TelecityGroup. In the certification process, the auditors distinguish between Type I and Type II. In a Type I ISAE 3402 report, they assess the control organisation at a specific point in time. During the audit, Securance evaluates the design and existence of control measures. In a Type II audit, they also assess the operating effectiveness of these measures. Schless: “We are working to ensure that our control organisation also operates according to the ISAE 3402 standard and expect to have the Type II report completed later this year. This will provide our customers worldwide with a clear and definitive guarantee.”

Telecity is pleased with this certification: it shows both Dutch and international organisations that we have correctly set up all processes regarding security.
