This European Standard addresses the physical security of data centres based upon the criteria and classifications for "availability", "security" and "energy efficiency enablement" within EN 50600-1.
This European Standard specifies requirements and recommendations for those data centre spaces, and the systems employed within those spaces in relation to protection against:
a) unauthorized access addressing organizational and technical solutions,
b) intrusion
c) fire events igniting within data centre spaces
d) other events within or outside the data centre spaces, which would affect the defined level of protection.
