Continent 8 Technologies is proud to announce its achievement of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for the Isle of Man, Gibraltar and Dublin data centres. The certification provides Continent 8 with ISO certification for the provision of colocation and managed services. This achievement is in direct response to our customers’ needs in an evolving and maturing business sector.
ISO/IEC 27001 is the international standard in information security management. This requires a systematic approach to managing an organisation’s information security risks and demonstrates the security controls and management processes in place.
John Stone, CTO of Continent 8 explained, “By achieving the internationally recognised ISO/IEC 27001 certification, Continent 8 has demonstrated its commitment to Information Security Management, in doing so it further strengthens our credentials as a managed hosting provider in a competitive sector.”
Michelle Orr, Head of Quality and Compliance for Continent 8 said, “At Continent 8 we have benchmarked ourselves against the best in the industry. Achieving this certification endorses the high standards we set within the company.”
During the coming year an independent body for certification will assess Continent 8’s facilities in Malta and Montreal.
