The confidentiality, integrity and availability of our customer's data are top priorities at GCI, giving customers valuable peace of mind that data is secure at all times. To that end, all GCI Datacentre sites are fully CCTV monitored by intelligent cameras, responding to schedule, motion detection, or operator direction as needed, with entrances and external areas being fully covered by surveillance with a digital storage system recording all activity for review. GCI have received ISO 27001 certification for our datacentres, an internationally recognised accreditation relating to data information & security. Certified ISO 27001 Datacentres are located in Manchester and our former MoD Smartbunker
Perimeter security is maintained with electronically-controlled access provided only with prior permission—at all times, this is controlled by on-site teams with CCTV and monitoring equipment in the central control room.
Highly-secure door access control systems log all site activity, with a two-factor authentication model using personal access cards and individual PINs being deployed. Cards are registered to individuals or logged out to visitors, ensuring we know who’s on-site at any one time, with activity reports being generated in line with our ISO compliant procedures.
