Globecast Has ISO Security Certification For Paris Teleport

Globecast’s Sainte-Assise teleport, located near Paris, has achieved ISO 27001 security certification, ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 50001 for energy efficiency. The certifications are for three years.

Renaud Presty, Security Director with Globecast, said, “Gaining ISO 27001 certification for our Sainte-Assise teleport is a key part of the continuously increasing security efforts across the whole company. It has established itself as an essential reference in terms of security and is a core part of conversations with existing and potential customers. Above all, it defines a methodological framework by building a Security Management System, the objective of which is the continuous improvement of the security of our systems.”

The teleport forms a key part of Globecast’s world-leading global connectivity network, alongside its teleports in LA and London, its Media Centres in Singapore, London and LA and offices around the world.

Presty adds, “Achieving ISO 27001 is a major achievement and required very diligent work, understanding precisely what work we had to do to meet the requirement and implement those changes across all security aspects, including, of course, IT. We have also developed an ongoing action plan to ensure absolute compliance. Alongside our recent TPN certifications, we have achieved a powerful, market-leading position when it comes to every aspect of security across today’s hyper-connected world. This is vital for customer confidence, especially given the volume and importance of the content that we handle daily.”
