A multi-layered approach to security Businesses are increasingly placing operations outside traditional IT into the data centre driven by trends like big data and the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence and cloud computing. This is driving ever more complex data center business and operating models and changing their risk profiles dramatically. Here we look at some of the key security considerations for data centre owners and operators in 2020 and beyond.
How to reduce your security guard budget, whilst maintaining the same level of security If you run or own a site that has a number of vehicles entering and exiting regularly, such as a depot or warehouse, then there’s a good chance you have a gatehouse of some description manned with security personnel. They are primarily in place to ensure only authorised vehicles access the site. Unless you have vehicles moving in and out at all times, for the most part these security guards have little to do. You can’t really allocate many additional responsibilities to them as they need to be present and ready to intercept and authenticate the next vehicle that arrives or leaves.
While the activities of a data centre are undeniably digital, the same approach is not always applied to the means via which the data centre itself comes about.
