ISO compliance consultancy for Kao Data

Kao Data’s confidence in Keysource’s capabilities led to four consecutive ISO standards with zero non-conformities.

About the project

Kao Data’s confidence in Keysource’s capabilities led to four consecutive ISO standards with zero non-conformities.

With its OCP Ready data centre campus strategically located just north of London, within the London-Stansted-Cambridge corridor, Kao Data offers optimised capacity for a range of applications from hyperscale, cloud and outsourced services, to HPC, colocation and retail uses.

The campus is one of the largest state-of-the-art colocation datacentre developments in the UK and provides highly resilient capacity and connectivity for national and international businesses.

Whilst the facilities have been designed to be ultra-secure and highly resilient, Kao Data understood the need for an ISO accredited integrated management system (IMS) to support the full scope of company plans and operations.

With a deep understanding of the requirements needed for the operations of critical facilities, Keysource in-house consultants and our expert partners were engaged to support the development, implementation and ongoing management of a fully Integrated Management System for Quality, Information Security, Environmental and Health & Safety from inception to accreditation and beyond.

We worked in partnership throughout the process to assist in the delivery of the services required for Kao Data to obtain successful accreditation to internationally recognised ISO standards with an external UKAS approved auditing body.
