a) unauthorized access addressing organizational and technological solutions;
c) internal fire events igniting within data centre spaces;
d) internal environmental events (other than fire) within the data centre spaces which would affect the defined level of protection;
e) external environmental events outside the data centre spaces which would affect the defined level of protection.
NOTE Constructional requirements and recommendations are provided by reference to ISO/IEC 22237-2.
Safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this document and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, information given in this document can be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.
