Macquarie Telecom’s IC2 datacentre gains ISO 27001 certification

Macquarie Park facility meets standards for both physical and cyber security

Australian managed hosting and telecommunications company, Macquarie Telecom, has announced that its $60 million Intellicentre 2 (IC2) datacentre, located in Macquarie Park, has been certified for ISO 27001.

“ISO 27001 is an indicator of our ongoing investment in ensuring the highest levels of cyber-security and anti-intrusion capabilities for IC2, in order to meet and exceed the rigorous standards of our government and enterprise clients,” Macquarie Telecom hosting managing director, Aidan Tudehope, said.

IC2 was certified by certification body, SAI Global, for its robust standards approach to information security management systems, which governs physical and non-physical security assets.

This includes host-based intrusion detection and prevention systems, securely-built server infrastructure, strong physical security, and biometric access control systems.

The certification adds to IC2’s existing credentials for physical and cyber security.

According to the telco, IC2 has been constructed and independently certified to meet the standards of the government protective security policy framework (PSPF) and ASIO T4: intruder protection.
