The Heightened Cyber Risk Environment and the Implications for Commercial Real Estate

Demand for modern, efficient, and secure data storage is disrupting data centre footprints, pricing models, and location selection tactics on a global scale.


Data Centres

The demand for data centre space is increasing at an accelerated rate, whilst the technology at the core of its operation is rapidly changing. Although cost remains key, there are many fundamental factors to consider for the provision of a data centre, which will impact all stakeholders, from landlord to end-user and operator to investor.

We are a multi-disciplined team advising clients of all sizes and industries - every client engagement is unique, but the level of service and professionalism you can expect from Cushman & Wakefield remains the same. With our holistic understanding, of data centre provision, from development to occupation, we can provide best in class advice to ensure our clients receive added and measurable value.

No matter the business, data continues to grow in its importance. At the same time the sheer volume, accessibility and requirements for its storage and transport, are ballooning. Data centre downtime can cost enterprises millions in lost revenue and compensation. It can also threaten the livelihood of a business by causing irreparable damage to its reputation.

Designed to support data centre due diligence and senior decision making when considering global investment and deployment activities the latest release of the Cushman & Wakefield 2016 Data Centre Risk Index ranks key established and emerging locations by the most appropriate risks affecting data centre operations in today's current climate.

In the latest report see which countries rank as most attractive and how shifting market realities are being addressed. With enterprises now considering the impact of the UK Referendum result to leave the European Union, the risk index provides a unique tool to help inform strategic decision-making.
