End-of-contract data extraction
Customer administrators can extract their company’s and employees’ data at the end of contract, by using the Agylia administration portal. This includes user data, content, and user learning history. A request at end of contract can also be made to Agylia for the return and erasing of customer data.
End-of-contract process
At end of contract, the customer’s Agylia instance is de-provisioned and all data returned to the customer. The customer’s endpoint address is taken offline making it inaccessible.

Information security policies and processes
Agylia operate a comprehensive ISO 27001 compliant Information Security Management System (ISMS) that ensures policies are maintained, followed and regularly reviewed. Within our ISMS policies are divided into the following sections: Risk Assessment, Organisation of information security, Human resources management, Asset management, Access control, Cryptography, Physical and environmental security, Operations security, Communications security, System acquisition, development and maintenance, Supplier relationships, Information security incident management, Information security aspects of business continuity management and Compliance.

Security committee meetings occur monthly with two members of the security committee also sitting on the Agylia Group Board ensuring a top down application of processes and procedures.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
All significant, non-routine changes to organisational information processing facilities (hardware or software) are subject to change control. IS Managers are responsible for carrying out a risk assessment to identify potential risks. Change Managers are responsible for authorising the change to proceed. Where required by a risk assessment, fall-back procedures or a roll-back strategy must be prepared. A testing plan, with clear acceptance criteria is documented prior to the change testing. Business unit representatives must accept changes prior to completion of testing. Change Managers authorise transfer to the operational environment, ensuring business processes aren't disturbed and business continuity plans are updated.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Identified vulnerabilities for organisational assets are prioritised as:

• Critical (immediate threat of data loss, corruption or unauthorised access)
• Urgent (non-immediate threat of data loss, corruption, or unauthorised access)
• Non-Critical (no current threat)

Agylia has the following timeline requirements for reacting to notifications of relevant vulnerabilities:

• Critical – 1 business day
• Urgent – 3 business days
• Non-critical – 5 business days

The Risk Committee receives monthly reports on vulnerability management, including information about the number of vulnerabilities in each organisational asset, what controls are in place, outstanding issues, and what's changed since the previous meeting.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
The Risk Committee performs the risk assessment to identify the type and level of audit logging and monitoring that might be required for each individual information asset. The Network Manager is responsible for configuring the information systems to meet the requirements of this procedure.

System administrators are prohibited from erasing or de-activating logs. If investigating a fault, members of the IT Department are permitted to turn on additional audit logging. After investigation of a fault, they may return to the original configuration or leave the new logging in place, but may not reduce below the default configuration.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Agylia operate an incident management procedure. Responsibilities are as follows:

• Agylia employees follow a standard procedure for reporting information security weaknesses or events.
• Information security events and weaknesses are reported to the IS Manager.
• Head of HR is responsible user training and events that can be used to support training activities.

IS weaknesses and events are reported using a Security Incident Log on Agylia’s internal SharePoint site. The IS Manager reports on how the event was dealt with and closed. Resolution notes are added to Security Incident Logs and security incidents are reviewed during risk committee meetings.
