A single minute of downtime costs your data center $8000 (Source Business Insider). All data center departments must play a role in supporting data center operations. This is particularly true for your security practice. Data centers must keep up with evolving regulations and security threats while ensuring their customers' needs are consistently met.

Whether you face a physical security breach or cyber-attacks, a cease in operations can cost your business millions in reputational damage, loss of customer contracts, and noncompliance fees. How do you secure a growing number of assets across multiple sites while staying ahead of new threats and regulations? How do you ensure that your security team operates within the regulatory bounds, and how quickly can you share evidence with stakeholders? How is security helping define policies that guide customers to access the tenant's equipment and nothing more?

Your security must help keep your operations running smoothly and stay ahead of the curve as new regulations emerge. During this session, we will discuss the role that security plays in co-location from visitor management to effectively securing racks/cages and showing how technology can be used to ensure that customers have access to the correct locations within the co-location data center.
