In my previous article we overlooked the security policy for Data Center doors and Security System for Data Centers. In this article let’s looks at the following

1.       Periodic Review and Termination / Revocation Access

2.       Access Control Log

 

 1.       Periodic Review and Termination / Revocation Access

Periodic (at least annual) reviews will be performed of those with any level of access to the Data Center.  ITKE* will perform these reviews.  If an individual no longer requires Data Center access, it will be terminate by Removing name from the ITKE* staff Access List.  The results of periodic reviews will be reported to the Head of ITKE*.  The report will include an updated list of those allowed access to the Data Center.

2.       Access Control Log

The Data Center Access Control Log must be properly maintained at all times.

The Log is maintained by ITKE* staff Access.  All individuals with ITKE* staff Access to the Data Center are responsible for maintaining this log. The following procedures must be followed:

  • Each time an individual with Contractors Access to the Data Center is admitted to the area, he must properly log in on the Access Control Log at the time of entrance.  The person admitting the visitor must countersign and fill out the appropriate section of the form.

 

  • Each time an individual with Contractors Access leaves the area, he must properly log out on the Access Control Log at the time he leaves (even if only for a short time). The person with ITKE* staff Access to the area who allows the visitor to leave must fill out the “Log Out” section of the Access Control Log.  The Representatives and the accompanying persons must wear their staff ID cards and our visitor cards within the ITKE* – Data Centre.

*ITKE is used just as reference which can be replaced by your organization or department name
