Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach Amberjack follow ISO27001 aligned processes for configuration and change management. Client requested changes are documented and responded to with a scope of work. A point of release a change note documents the changes and is authorised by each client. All documentation is stored centrally for future reference.
3rd party configuration changes are also documented in a similar way with change notes issued for review and authorisation. Change notes will include roll back plans, security risks, timing of maintenance windows and details of the changes being made.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach A risk management framework has been deployed across the organisation to ensure a consistent risk-based approach is taken to assess any potential threats. Patch management is defined within the organisation's IT Security policy. Security-related patches are deployed to critical servers within a defined timely manner. Other servers are configured to automatically apply patches once released. Information about potential threats is obtained from various sources, including threat intelligence notifications and vendors' announcements.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach Security controls have been deployed to detect, prevent and alert on any potential compromise of the organisation's assets. Details of responses to any potential compromise are published in the organisation's Data Breach Incident Management Guide. This document defines the roles and responsibilities of the incident management team, the steps to be taken to contain an incident, assessing the extent and severity of an incident, and what actions for notification are to be taken. Incidents are responded to on a case by case basis, and always in accordance with all legal and regulatory requirements.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach Incident management is key to enabling fast resolution and transparent communications to clients. The Amberjack incident management process is based on ISO27001 controls and covers roles and responsibilities, ownership, communications plan and action logging. Depending on the scale of the incident, client facing service tickets may be used to track and communicate progress, or for larger incidents dedicated communication paths are defined for each affected client. Following an incident a reason for outage (RFO) report is authored to advise clients on any remedial activities and opportunities for improvement.
