The data halls at CDC are secured to
current government standards along with
24 hours a day, 7 days a week on-site
security guards and CCTV monitoring.


CDC has implemented a sophisticated alarm and monitoring system. 24 hour a day on site guards are fully trained in emergency and continuity processes. They conduct regular patrols both inside and outside of the facility. Individual clients only have access to their POD or custom room.

Government Standard

CDC facilities are designed to meet ASIO T4 standards for Zone 4 security as a minimum. This is delivered in conjunction with our SCEC endorsed consultants to ensure the PSPF requirements are met for physical security, access control and Type 1 alarms. CDC facilities have an upgrade path to easily provide Zone 5 security where and when it is required.


CDC clients can access the facility at any time of the day on any day of the week. CDC has robust procedures in place to allow clients, their service providers and other recognised contractors access to the site. Access restrictions within CDC ensure that clients are only able to access their equipment.
