Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
We run an agile development lifecycle where feature changes are defined by PBIs (product backlog items). Developed code is version controlled as is passed through a gated release process that is an intrinsic part of the develop, build & deploy DevOps cycle. Release builds (software components deployed to Azure assets) are strictly controlled within the Azure DevOps platform and cascade from development to test and pre-production environments before final deployment to production. Changes at organisational level undergo an ITIL change management process, where the CAB (change authority board) evaluates impact and implications for proposed changes before they are authorised.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Computing endpoints are regularly scanned for vulnerable software, Windows updates are regularly applied, malware protection software is installed. Security advisories are regularly monitored and actioned accordingly. The solution deployment will typically include within the build pipeline processes for checking for vulnerabilities in code (Secure Code Scan) and in external software components used (Dependency Checker). Once the solution is deployed within the Azure cloud infrastructure, the use of Defender For Cloud will continually assess the security posture and be monitored for any relevant risk mitigation actions.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Condatis maintains an ISO27001 accredited protective monitoring process, available on request. Potential compromises are assigned the highest priority under Sitekit's SLA (Critical) and immediately investigated.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We operate an ITIL-aligned support desk ticketing solution that is able to track the incident lifecycle stages of logging, triage, categorisation, prioritisation, analysis, resolution and post-incident review. Incidents are reported via alerts or by users through email, phone or portal channels. Incidents can transition to problem tickets where root cause and subsequent full resolution can be established. An incident playbook is maintained for common incident types with respective responses, along with knowledge base accessible via customer portal. Incident reports with timelines, impact and root cause analysis will be provided as part of post-incident engagement with customer.

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

As with most companies over the Covid lock-down period our engagements, workshops and on-boarding now are standardised around teams or zoom calls including demos, white boarding and retrospectives. For the period covered by G cloud 13 we will continue this practice even though the restrictions have been removed. This will reduce our travel company wide by 95% and thus our carbon footprint. We will also use any Gcloud contracts to assist us in achieving ISO 14001 the environmental standard which will in turn involve us vetting our suppliers and partners over their environmental impact. As some the of technologies that we are involved in use distributed ledgers, this will have a significant influence on suppliers, partners and customers.
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

During COVID-19, we moved to a fully remote office, allowing all staff to continue in employment from their own home while still being able to fulfil all the obligations to our customers and complete contracts on time and to standard. We now work in a hybrid model where staff chose to work from home or the office.

Condatis is able to support those shielding or impacted by Covid by continuing to provide full time remote working for those that want/require it. We will also continue to provide a home office set up. This will allow Condatis to provide valuable employment for those affected or shielding from Covid while still being able to deliver services as per the contract and customer requirements.

Condatis offer physical and mental health courses to staff, including Mental Health First Aid, Mental Health Awareness for Manager, Resilience Training and First Aid at Work. In having well trained and aware staff working on a contract, this will enable a proactive approach to Mental Health and a quick response on Physical Health. In turn this currently reduces and will continue to reduce the demand on the health and care services.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

Condatis is an employer that advocates and educates other employers to support apprentice programmes. We have presented to over 100 companies about the benefits of having apprentices as part of the Scottish Apprenticeship week.

Condatis was the first company in Scotland to provide a fully virtual Foundation Apprenticeship programme in Software Development, targeting remote high schools based in the Highlands and Islands. We want all young adults to receive an equal opportunity to become an apprentice regardless of their location and we currently have six Foundation Apprentices.

We also support Modern Apprentices, of which two apprentices continue to be employed by us today.

Our Apprenticeship programmes create employment and training opportunities. For those in the Software Development programme, we are providing training opportunities within an industry with a skills shortage. For one of the Modern Apprentices, this was an opportunity for employment within a deprived area.

In the delivery of a project, we anticipate including apprentices on projects with their mentors. We support providing further training for individuals on a project to close a skills gaps or attain relevant qualifications.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

Condatis treats people equally and individuals are not disadvantaged by prejudices or bias. We ensure that recruitment, selection, training, development and promotion procedures result in no job applicant or employee receiving less favourable treatment because of a protected characteristic. Our objective is to ensure that individuals are treated on the basis of their relevant aptitudes, skills and abilities.

We invest in women in technology by supporting female Apprentices in Software Development and Human Resources. We support employees in deprived areas to attain relevant professional qualifications in their field, to enable them to have a successful career. We have attended, and had key note speakers, at recruitment events for individuals that identify as a woman.

We will continue to provide training and promotion opportunities to all staff, regardless of a protected characteristic.  We will continue to offer the living wage as a minimum. If time and funding permits Condatis plan to champion women in technology by presenting at Edinburgh, and ideally wider, based sessions
Wellbeing

Wellbeing

At Condatis, we have a team of Mental Health First Aiders, who are available to support staff in need and support various initiatives through a Well-being Hub. The Hub provides suggestions to promote better well-being, such as helping others and staying active. We offer fitness classes to employees to promote their physical health. 

We promote well being in the workplace for all staff to inspire positive working environments and prevent stress. This allows for the individual, the organisation and the project to thrive. 

As part of our own supplier assessments and we ensure that any third party supplier need to meet our own ethical standard which includes their treatment of their workforce. We do the same for prospective customers
