The Layers of Datacentre Security

When designing or improving upon existing physical security arrangements for datacentres, best practice includes an integrated six layered approach to protecting the facility and data. An integrated approach combines operational expertise, technology-enabled security and life safety system capabilities, alongside man-guarding, monitoring and response services, coupled with effective cybersecurity, to effectively manage recognised risks and threats.

In this upcoming blog series by G4S, we will consider specific security for each of these six layers within datacentres.
