DENVER – (August 9, 2021) – Cologix, North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, announced today that it achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) certification for its information security management system (ISMS) supporting its Data Center Colocation and Interconnection Services for the specified corporate office and data center facility locations. Cologix’s ISO 27001 certificate was issued by Schellman & Company, LLC.
“The ISO 27001 certification guarantees to Cologix’s customers and partners that our products and services meet the highest possible security management standards,” said Laura Ortman, President and Chief Revenue Officer at Cologix. “This rigorous certification process demonstrates our commitment to mitigating risks, safeguarding data and continuing to improve Cologix’s information security management system (ISMS) across our data centers and interconnection services. Not only does this certification reinforce the trust our customers and partners have in Cologix, it also reinforces the trust our customers and partners have in us to follow the strict compliance, risk management and governance structures we have in place, but also demonstrates our commitment to security management going forward. Thanks to the hard work of our team, our ISO 27001 accreditation will allow us to deliver best practices in security management now and in the future.”
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that demonstrates an organization’s commitment to establishing a management system relevant to information security, and continual improvement over time. An ISMS is a holistic approach to securing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of corporate information assets. It consists of policies, procedures and other controls involving people, processes and technology.
Risk management forms the cornerstone of an ISMS. Regular information security risk assessments are conducted to determine which security controls to implement and maintain, and to ensure the effectiveness of the ISMS. The ISO 27001 standard defines its requirements for the risk management process, including risk assessment and risk treatment.
“At Cologix, we design our physical infrastructure, products, services and internal processes around strict security systems and best practices, from building facilities, managing assets and providing customer services to updating and maintaining systems, training staff and continually improving our security measures,” said Matt Spencer, Chief Technology Officer at Cologix. “This certification includes an extensive evaluation and audit of our methodologies, processes and compliance against the industry’s top information security practices and standards—and demonstrates the commitment of every Cologix employee to deliver the highest level of security to support our customers and partners.”
This benchmark certification includes 30 of Cologix’s data centers, its corporate headquarters and its data center colocation and interconnection services.
