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
All changes that are to be performed in the Production Environment can only be executed by Senior Management. All code changes are reviewed by at least 2 engineers and one of the VPs of Engineering before being pushed to Production. The Security Team is directly involved in the development lifecycle and collaborates daily with the R&D Team to ensure that all new developments are in line with industry best practices and Userzoom's internal policies.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
Vulnerability information is obtained from third-party services and systems are examined for known
vulnerabilities and recommend actions.
The scheduling plan deals with critical security and functionality patches. This plan helps Userzoom deal with the prioritisation and scheduling of updates, by their nature, must be deployed in a more immediate fashion. They are applied almost immediately depending on severity following the full change management. Once a patch has been determined valid, it is typically placed in a test environment. The test environment mirrors production as closely as possible.
All critical security patches are installed within 30 days of vendor release
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
As a key part of the configuration and change management, UserZoom performs internal audits and vulnerability assessments every 30 days. If any kind of vulnerability that may affect UserZoom systems is detected, it gets patched following the internal procedure. Once the patch has been applied and the issue has been remediated, additional scans are performed immediately. UserZoom maintains a log of all patches applied to systems
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
Userzoom has a complete incident management policy available upon request. It contains details around incident reporting categorisation and handling. It also addresses the procedure to deal with a potential data breach and defines the steps to take both from a technical and compliance perspective.

Wellbeing

Wellbeing

We are People First and it is our goal to be a world-class place to work. We know that to feel great, perform at our best and achieve success, we must first take care of ourselves. We are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of our people and we aim to make this accessible to everyone globally through the UZ Be program.

Wellbeing is a journey where we make choices towards a healthy and happy state of being. It doesn’t matter where we start on our wellbeing journey, it’s more important that we are headed in the right direction. The UZ Be Cycle is our holistic approach and focuses on four pillars that represent positive actions to support us on this journey. The four pillars are move, connect, nourish and thrive.

We gain insights from the UserZoom by proactively seeking feedback on wellbeing events and initiatives.
