Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability

Approach to resilience
System resilience is founded on a multiple server architecture with a continuous program of live migration, and immediate fail over switching. A layered approach to data storage utilising separate encrypted data repositories ensures enterprise standard data recovery and reconstruction. System code bases are maintained in a separate third party source control system. A documented system of recovery and contingency actions is in place with named individuals responsible for initiating recovery protocols. The documented recovery systems are reviewed on a minimum annual basis. Our UK data centers are regularly audited and have the following certifications\ISO 14001:2015, ISO 22301:2012, ISO/IEC 27001:2013, ISO 50001:2011, ISO 9001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2007, PCI DSS, SOC 1, SOC 2 Type 2

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach
System and service change is extensively planned and documented. A defined system of development workflow permission and testing ensures that changes are planned rigorously assessed for impact and tested before release. Where a change may cause any significant impact on an existing system client or user, appropriate action is taken to mitigate or eliminate such impact. Industry standard version control and change management tracking is deployed. An adverse change can be instantly traced and the system can be reverted if required.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
Our servers are updated continuously to ensure we are running the latest patches and security updates. This is done on a bi weekly basis as minimum or immediately as new threats and issues emerge. We operate containerized production and development environments, so both the environments and the containers are updated during this process.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
Automated scanning operates at the server and application level. Server level monitoring ensures we quickly detect application, service, or process problems, and system downtime is avoided. Application level monitoring is analysed. Suspicious system activity (outgoing traffic, system usage, repetitive access) generates alerts.Dedicated front end monitoring applications identify the majority of errors before they are reported by users, and client side errors are swiftly fixed. Our UK data centers are regularly audited and have the following certifications\ISO 14001:2015, ISO 22301:2012, ISO/IEC 27001:2013, ISO 50001:2011, ISO 9001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2007, PCI DSS, SOC 1, SOC 2 Type 2
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach
Incidents can be reported via any communication channel. Incidents are recorded, triaged and escalated through a defined management pathway. A defined and audited process is utilised to track issues through our investigation and management system until resolution. All staff are contractually obligated to report any information security event immediately and cooperate with investigation and management actions . We provide immediate and transparent reporting to system clients and system users of the nature and extent of any incident. Following investigation and analysis clients and system users are advised of any interim and longer term remedial, mitigating or preventative actions
