Custodian Expands its Compliance Team with New Recruit

By Drew Morley
New Compliance Officer

Our team is ever-expanding here at Custodian Data Centres, with the arrival of our new Compliance Officer, Ben!

He’ll be working heavily on making sure our ISO 27001 certification, which is BSI (British Standards Institution) audited every year, runs smoothly and continually improves, as well as creating further opportunities to improve standards and accreditations.

Having worked in IT before and coming from his previous role as a Compliance & Improvements Manager, Ben thinks Custodian is the perfect fit for him, “In terms of some aspects of compliance, like ISO 27001, data centres are up there as one of the most important industries involved with it, so I was keen to get on board with that.”

When asked how important it is having such compliance certifications in place for Custodian and its clients, he said, “Ultimately, it’s critical in giving customers the assurance they need when choosing a data centre.”

Ben also hopes to bring new compliance standards and certifications to Custodian in the not-too-distant future, saying, “At the moment, we are working on the IGSOC compliance and looking at what that’s going to involve for the business. This will allow us to work even closer in partnership with the NHS. We are also creating a strategic compliance roadmap, which will allow us to identify the right compliance standards for Custodian.

“Right now, as it stands, I think the standards and practices that are in place at Custodian Data Centres are very solid. There is always room for improvement, but this is down to the constantly changing standards we must adapt to as a business today.”

We look forward to working with Ben to make sure our customers are given the best practices and processes when using Custodian Data Centres.
