Information security policies and processes
TCS adopts a process-based approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, maintaining and improving the effectiveness of the TCS Information Security Management System (ISMS).
TCS has adopted the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” (PDCA) model that is applied to all ISMS processes. This ensures that an ongoing management process is in place for Information security.

TCS has a defined and implemented Information Security Management Framework based on ISO 27001 security standard. TCS has received Enterprise wide Triple ISO (27001, 9001, 20000) certification.

The TCS Information Security Management Framework consists of the following:
• Information Security Policy
• Information Security Standards
• Information Security Procedures.

Operational security

Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach
The change management procedure conforms to ISO 27001 standard and ensures that all changes are controlled, including the submission, recording, analysis, decision making, and approval of the change.

• Changes are analysed for business and technical impact. This analysis is shared with Change Management Committee and on approval changes are planned for implementation.
• Changes are documented, tested and based on user approvals migrated in Production. Changes are tested in development and QA environment. Roll back mechanism is in place in case of any adverse effect.
• Changes are tracked in Change Register and are reconciled at regular interval.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
Application Security assessment includes testing of the vulnerabilities identified (Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), Authentication, Authorization, Data Validation, SQL injection and so on.

Tools selection is done keeping in mind specific application scenario which ensures that tools best suited for an application are used. For Application Assessment TCS uses a various tool such as HP Webinspect, IBM Appscan, Paros, Nikto.

Network Security Assessment:
Network Security assessment includes testing of the Host, internal network, and perimeter. For Network Assessment TCS uses a various tool such as Nessus, Core Impact, Wireshark, Nmap.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
TCS has implemented both IDS and IPS. Alerts generated by the IDS & IPS devices are continuously monitored. The Network Monitoring team takes appropriate action based on any suspicious activity observed. There is a dedicated (Corporate SOC) team to ensure 24*7 monitoring.
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
TCS provides its ticketing tool – Support Management - as the primary channel for support. Customer SPoCs will be expected to:-
• Log tickets in Support Management for incidents/queries/requests related to TCS Platform

b. Reduced greenhouse gas emissions (Scopes 1 + 2) by 61.8% since 2008 (3 tCO2E/FTE/Annum to 1.15 tCO2e/FTE/Annum in FY 2020)
c. Reduced specific energy consumption YoY by 11.9%; specific carbon footprint down 11.8%.
