Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Our configuration and change management policy sets out the processes we follow. Access to cloud infrastructure services and related access permissions is restricted to specific roles. Our Cloud Operations team is responsible for configuration and change management - general support staff do not have access. The application layer and related upgrades is managed by our support team who take responsbilitiy for application changes. Updated versions of applications are tested for vulnerabilities before general release.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
We use vulnerability testing software to test application vulnerabilities prior to release to customers. If vulnerabilities are found in a current release then these are fixed and issued in a new release, which becomes the new current release.

We run Crowdstrike on all servers to provide 3rd party input into security vulnerabilities.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
We use software vulnerability testing to indentify potenial compromises in our applications. These are fixed prior to release. New potential compromises when identified are fixed and issued in new releases. We have a formal incident response policy and process which treats each incident as it is reported on its own merits - for example assessing whether the incident is a single customer incident or relevant to many customers. We assess critial incidents within 2 hours.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We have a pre-defined process for incidents which are reported via our help desk. Incidents which relate to Confidentiality, Integrity or Availability of service are escalated; availability issues to our 3rd line team, confidentiality and integrity issues immediately to our compliance team via a specific incident reporting template. The incident compliance team has a template that determines the reporting process.

Approach to secure software development best practice
Independent review of processes (for example CESG CPA Build Standard, ISO/IEC 27034, ISO/IEC 27001 or CSA CCM v3.0)
