Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
All changes are managed through an internal CRM / Support Desk system. Changes are evaluated, designed, built and tested. When available for deployment, scheduled maintenance windows are created and updates are deployed, all of which are audit tracked and documented in the CRM / Support Desk system.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Penetration testing by the data center and regular firewall updates are the primary method to protect against vulnerability. Monitoring of logs gives insight into the source of potential threats, if any are identified then any recommended updates or patches are deployed as a matter of urgency. Regular internet research is also used to locate domestic and global threats.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Spikes in traffic, increases on port blocks enable us to identify potential compromises. Any identification is dealt with immediately with senior management being involved in any responses to an incident.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We have an incident and corrective action policy which outlines the internal process for dealing with an indecent. The policy includes the escalation process, the communication process all based on a severity level. Incidents are reported via the Support portal and they are issued a severity level. Depending upon the severity level the correct escalation and response targets are assigned and then tracked against the initial support ticket that was raised. Regular updates are provided to clients for all incidents that are reported
