Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach The servers are monitored through SSCM and all assets are maintained through a central inventory. The servers are scanned and patched for vulnerabilities periodically.
A committee reviews the changes to the server and the configuration. The committee decides based on the test results and the risk involved. The changes are not performed without prior approval from the committee and the stakeholders. The normal change requests go through complete phase of stakeholder approvals, testing and UAT.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach Scan is run on servers, once every month using Vulnerability Assessment tool The vulnerabilities are identified, remediation for the identified vulnerabilities are completed within 30 days All stakeholders are informed and the same change management process applies to the remediation process. There are various ways including the VA update and emails where we get inputs on potential threats.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach At the desktop Level, AVs are installed and updated which does real time monitoring on potential threats. At the network level, the traffic are regulated through firewall. We also have IDS which analysis traffic and whenever a potential attack is identified an automatic ticket is raised under security incident queue and get resolved based on the severity. The responses are provided based on the severity level.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach Multiple IDS devices are situated in the perimeter of the network which continuously monitor the inbound and outbound traffic. A 24x7 team monitors these incidents and provide real time solution. Timely escalations make sure all incidents are worked on priority and necessary patching or fixes are done following the change management process.
