The challenge

Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) worked with us to design an effective risk management framework in accordance with ISAE 3402, which promoted a clear understanding of the risk management framework by customers, staff and other stakeholders. The Colt risk management framework should be able to evolve and scale across all European data centres.

The solution

We were able to solve the challenges faced by an organisation with many different locations across Europe through our best practices ISAE 3402 | SOC 1 framework for data centres and our Control Reports solution for an effective implementation of ISAE 3402. We designed and built the entire framework, internal procedures that eliminated redundant controls, managed the control framework and planned an effective programme to provide information to the external auditor.

Results

The control framework and control matrix has been implemented in accordance with COSO ERM. After that, we have made the internal risk management team of Colt Data Centre Services successful with extensive training, documentation and process guidance. We have done this to ensure that their risk management and control framework continues to meet their expectations. By improving productivity, eliminating redundant controls and improving accuracy, we continue to help them maintain high quality standards.
