JT has announced that its Data Centre facilities and Cloud Service have achieved the internationally recognised Information Security Management certification, ISO/IEC 27001.
To attain this important certification JT was required to demonstrate that its Data Centres and Cloud Service align with best practice. Especially, around an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS). Adhering to the set of controls outlined by ISO/IEC 27001, means JT has examined the risks around information security. And thus, has put in place policies and procedures to manage those risks. This will help protect its information assets and those of its customers.
As the Channel Islands’ leading provider of Data Centre facilities, JT already meets the highest level of recognised industry standards. This includes the certification from Service Organisation Controls (SOC 2 and 3) and achieving the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). In addition, in 2015 JT’s award-winning Cloud Platform became the first of its kind to gain regulatory approval from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. And it was allowed to host global eGaming customers. Even recently it received the Best Go-to-Market Cloud Strategy Awards in the inaugural Telco Cloud Forum Awards.
A Testament to the Hard Work of our Team
Managing Director of JT’s Global Enterprise Division, Paul D Taylor, said: “Achieving another major level of accreditation is a further demonstration of the level of quality of our market-leading Channel Island’s hosting facilities. ISO/IEC 27001 is a highly regarded and much sought after certification. Adding this to our portfolio of quality endorsements is testament to the hard work of our teams that have played part in ensuring that we adhere to the most stringent controls. I’m very proud of the joint commitment shown by our teams to delivering the very best service levels across the JT Group.
“Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 further underpins our commitment to ensuring our hosting and Cloud service is as broadly accredited and secure as any in the Channel Islands. Hosting is a fiercely competitive sector. Our global customers expect the highest level of commitment to compliance and governance. So, it’s important to differentiate the service we offer by continuing to secure industry standards like this. Importantly, achieving this certification on top of our existing accreditations bolsters our profile. Especially, amongst a wider global audience and differentiates JT as a secure, trusted partner.”
David Cartwright, JT’s Group Security Officer, said: “The award shows our customers that security is absolutely fundamental. Especially, to the day-to-day operation of the services we offer. We already had huge confidence in the quality of our operations. However, this certification provides further authoritative independent confirmation and surety to our customers”.
