Moving Critical Infrastructure into Colocation

In the course of digital transformation, many companies are moving IT to Colocation Data Centers. However, there are a number of things that need to be taken into account, especially for organizations and companies with increased protection requirements. This is because the KRITIS regulation, which has been updated in January 2022, obligates operators of Critical Infrastructures to comply with special guidelines. What do operators of Critical Infrastructures need consider when selecting a Colocation? How can colocation operators guarantee their customers secure availability meeting KRITIS requirements?
