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.
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. In the context of this article we focus on how by digitalising the data centre design and build process significant advantages can be realised, particularly in terms of ensuring a secure environment and accelerating speed to market.

There’s no doubt about it, life in the new normal will be different to what we’re accustomed to. That means businesses, communities, and people need to adapt to keep safe and protected, which will undoubtedly present new challenges. Those challenges, however, aren’t challenges that can’t be overcome. Thankfully, you, the protectors of the world, are working harder and smarter to ensure we rise above them.
Many businesses are having to shut their doors on public access areas and high street locations during the COVID-19 lockdown and we know that this can add to a growing list of worries, particularly about how you can ensure your business premises are secured during any extended shut down or closure period. Under normal circumstances, we would recommend undertaking a security assessment with your security provider to ensure all aspects are covered and to identify any particular security risks that need to be addressed.
