One of Turkey’s largest data center and cloud services providers, Turkcell, has achieved certification to the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) cloud information security standard ISO/IEC 27017:2015.

This expands on the ISO/IEC 27001 certificate that the company previously achieved. As one of first cloud services providers to achieve this certification, Turkcell demonstrates to securely store cloud and data information of its cloud service customers in the international field.

The ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards establish requirements for cloud service providers (CSPs) and customers to build a secure cloud environment and help reduce security risks. The ISO/IEC 27017:2015 standard would demonstrate that Turkcell fulfills the requirements for the management of the cloud infrastructure.
