Vigorous Selection and Scoping Ensures
Best Practice Across Entire Operations

Cloud and Managed Hosting expert, DediPower is now fully ISO
27001 certified.  Taking ISO 27001 adoption to its extreme,
DediPower has not only implemented all 20 of the standard’s
mandatory clauses but also 129 additional controls. This reflects
the DediPower ‘Support with Passion’ philosophy that ensures
excellence across all their managed hosting, cloud computing and
co-location services.

Chris Miller, DediPower’s CEO comments, “Enterprises need to
trust their hosting provider to safeguard their valuable data and
provide best practice. Consequently, many are seeking the
reassurance that an ISO standard brings.  However, all
certification is not necessarily the same and, in some cases, the
scope can fall short.  At DediPower, we wanted to make ISO
27001 count and chose to adopt it across our entire operations -
that meant implementing the additional 129 controls for the
Information Security Management System (ISMS), leaving only 4
non-applicable clauses out.”

The accreditation includes all of DediPower’s Enterprise Class
Tier 3 data centres, its offices, departments and
employees. The British Standards Institute (BSI) will
externally audit these twice a year to ensure continued

Miller adds, “Choosing to implement ISO 27001 represents a major
long term commitment.  One that involves appropriate
management support and systems as well as continual improvement
programmes and on going assessment of risks, vulnerabilities and
threats.  Information Security is not a “fix and forget”
system, it is constantly evolving and changing.  Responding
positively and responsibly to these needs is an integral part of
DediPower’s proactive approach to its solutions and clients.”
