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
BearingPoint uses a configuration of network device solutions that provide efficient change notifications and updates that are made within the network.

Our network configuration management tools detect configuration changes in real time and sends notifications to the administrator. Our solution allows for the configuration of change notifications whenever there is a change in:

1. Startup or running configuration
2. Startup configuration alone
3. Running configuration alone

Other aspects of the configuration include E-mail notification, sending SNMP traps for configuration changes, collects Syslog messages and generates Tickets for configuration changes that need to be routed to specific change e-mail addresses
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
BearingPoint solutions allow for a live view across our entire enterprise - end-points, servers, applications, cloud work-loads, IoT devices and operational technology industrial control systems.

The BearingPoint solution predicts attacks and prioritises all vulnerabilities to drive a measured increase in efficiency.

This enables organisational alignment in collaboration within security protocols in order to re-mediate all threats.

Our solution aligns security with IT business objectives.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
BearingPoint uses protective monitoring technology and processes as part of our risk management strategy through the on-going collection and automated analysis of all log and event data, looking at all records of activity and performing real-time advanced correlation and pattern recognition.

Our technologies alert on both individual and broader malicious event sequences simplifying re-mediation and mitigating risk.

BearingPoint complies with the UK Government CESG good practise guide 13 (GPG13) and is a major component providing oversight of our corporate systems. It also maintains organisational risk management strategies related to commercial regulations such as PCI DSS.
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
BearingPoint follows the ITIL incident management best practice which is closely aligned with the service desk which is the single point of contact for all users communicating with IT.

In the event of an unplanned interruption to, or quality reduction of an IT service our process follows a structured workflow, that encourages efficiency and best results on behalf of our customers.

The incident process provides efficient incident handling which in turn ensures continual service up-time.

Categorisation of incidents dependent on their business impact can be low, medium or high and procedurally follow initial diagnosis, through to resolution and recovery.

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

BearingPoint has established an international working group 'E-Mission Zero' to manage our carbon emissions and support the global fight against climate change. We are a proud signatory to the UN Global Compact. We adopt a data-driven approach to monitoring and improving our carbon emissions, based on our 'Emissions Calculator' tool. We have identified four drivers of CO2 emissions - business travel, IT, Commuting, and Office emissions, and work actively to introduce initiatives that minimise these. We have, for example, been tracking, minimising, and offsetting our business travel emissions since 2015. However, we know we need to do more. We: -Worked with our Sustainable By Design Leadership Committee to establish a firmwide emissions goal of a 50% reduction in emissions by 2025 (compared to our 2019 baseline). -Have established a network of Sustainability Agents across the business; these agents are responsible for generating and implementing new carbon reduction ideas in their countries. -Have extended working from home opportunities, supporting remote work with online tools and a firmwide travel policy that incorporates emissions and wellbeing in travel decisions. -Most offices are now located close to main stations, incentivising rail travel and use of public transport -Screen our offices qualitatively for sustainability -Are moving toward paper-free offices using tools such as DocuSign -Undertook a commuting survey to understand routines and how we can minimise carbon impacts -Many countries are now providing bikes for employees -Introduced an app which allows employees to offset their private carbon emissions -Build sustainability into device choices and decisions -Implemented sustainable procurement guidelines -Introduced a vendor sustainability scorecard within our supply chain -Work to inspire each other with 'Digital Good Deeds' such as 'treedom' (tree planting) and 'Ecosia' (sustainable search engine)
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

BearingPoint has worked hard to ensure that our staff and our clients are supported to engage with local communities to assist in recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, through support to employment, retraining and return to work schemes that impact on individuals and local organisations and businesses. We have also worked hard to support our health and other public sector clients assess and manage demand for their services post-pandemic, for example with workload demand and capacity planning, or advice on effective hybrid ways of working. As part of our engagement with clients, we will work with you to identify local voluntary groups or other organisations providing support to the communities in which your staff live and work, and identify practical, measurable ways in which we can offer support to help with Covid-19 recovery.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

BearingPoint works hard to ensure that the communities in which we live and work are supported in tackling economic inequality through, for example, offering paid internships, access to training, ensuring diversity and collaboration in our supply chain (for a particular contract or more generally), and through advice and provision of pro-bono consulting support on issues relating to modernising delivery of public services and increasing value for money without negatively affecting front-line services. This often delivers improvements in citizen experience. As part of our engagement with clients, we will work with you to identify local voluntary groups or other organisations providing support to the communities in which your staff live and work, and identify practical, measurable ways in which we can offer support to help with tackling economic inequality in your local area.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

BearingPoint is passionate about making sure our people feel like they belong, and that our work environment and culture is inclusive and supportive of equality. BearingPoint has established a firmwide Diversity, Inclusion, Variety and Equality (DIVE) Council, nominated a designated Management Committee Sponsor and a firmwide DIVE Sponsor, and is actively working to identify new initiatives to promote and embed Diversity and Inclusion. We actively monitor diversity statistics in our workforce, adopting a data-based approach to inform our policy and development of new DIVE initiatives. For example: • Our firmwide People Survey collects insights on perceived belonging, psychological safety and levels of engagement • Our annual DIVE Surveys collect insights into the experience of employees, which we use to inform processes and structures to improve the employee journey from recruitment onward We have established four key ‘affinity initiatives’, each tasked with addressing different aspects of diversity and inclusion. These groups provide a safe space for their members, as well as promoting ally networks and collaboration in ways that benefit all of our employees: - Ability@BearingPoint advocates for prevention and seek to contribute to a culture where health issues can be addressed - More@BearingPoint (Minorities of Religion and Ethnicity) raises awareness that racial and religious discrimination are still happening in this world and aims to start a conversation about it - Proud@BearingPoint brings together LGBTQ+ people and allies that think it should not make a difference whom you love and which gender you identify with - Women@BearingPoint is a network for learning, connecting and advocating for higher representation in the workforce. Female Acceleration is a priority topic for BearingPoint’s 2025 Strategy. • We have developed a firmwide roadmap to define how we can trickle our ambition down into different countries, bearing in mind that legalities differ across our many geographies


The wellbeing of our workforce, including our client-facing teams, is high on BearingPoint's list of priorities and features heavily in our Sustainability strategy. We engage regularly with our staff via People Surveys, taking the pulse of our people in terms of perceived belonging, psychological safety, and levels of engagement. Our results indicate high and stable levels for all of these indicators. Our Ability@bearingpoint initiative is key in ensuring continued wellbeing for our people. When Covid-19 hit, we established a mental health resource centre, and we supported home working by providing staff with additional mobility equipment. Other measures implemented include remote social sessions, resilience training, and a monthly Wellbeing newsletter. We continue to offer a wellbeing programme around stress management, nutrition, and ergonomics, and implemented a virtual coffee machine, an MS Teams space where colleagues can meet informally to chat. We have also implemented a health-oriented leadership training manual to embed physical and mental health in our day-to-day work and to empower our people to act with care. This manual includes advice on how to identify when people's health might be posing a challenge and how to design a work environment that is not damaging to wellbeing. As part of our engagement with clients, we will work with you to identify practical, measurable ways in which we can extend our own initiatives and offer support to help with improving wellbeing in your organisation.
