Element Critical Adds ISO 27001 Certification To Our Compliance Standards

For this reason, we are delighted to announce our Silicon Valley One data center in Sunnyvale, California, has achieved the internationally respected ISO/IEC 27001 certification – a special distinction added to our list of compliance certifications.  Meeting the ISO/IEC 27001 standard proves the highest protection for all business and confidential data – thereby minimizing the risk of unauthorized access to it.

What Is ISO 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is a set of standards for information security management systems (ISMS) created by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission, both independent and non-governmental organizations.  The ISO-27001 standard requires a systematic examination of our organizations’ information security risks, the design and implementation of a comprehensive suite of information security controls to address all risks, and the adoption of a continual management process to meet the most trusted security practices.

ISO Certified Data Center Offers Element Critical Customers A Competitive Advantage

The very process of obtaining compliance with the ISO 27001 standard brings considerable value to our internal company processes.  In addition, many of our customers have mandates within their organizations to meet industry compliance standards.  By offering colocation services compliant with ISO/IEC 27001 standards, Element Critical data centers check a crucial box for our customers and offer pass-through benefits that enhance their business.  Here are a few of the ways that businesses benefit from having their environment in an ISO 27001 certified colocation facility:
