Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Software configuration is undertaken in-house and follows good industry practice within an agile methodology.

Code changes and new feature provision are assessed for threat as part of the security group.

The infrastructure level is a fully managed service on our behalf by Azure under an agreed SLA.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
We carry out periodic reviews (and yearly independent penetration tests) of threats to service availability and viability, based on membership of a security community, that constantly monitors known threats and vulnerabilities. Our best defence is in providing well-architected applications and high-grade communications methods. The status, location and configuration of our software and infrastructure components are tracked throughout their lifetime. Changes to the service are assessed for potential security impacts and then managed to resolution where relevant.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
We constantly monitor network traffic and access requests across a real-time network that identifies early warnings of high-risk traffic. Our response is real time and immediate to threats to service viability and availability. Additionally, our service effectively monitors misuse and malfunction. Our intention is to give confidence of capturing enough service meta-data to identify the suspicious or inappropriate use of our services, and can take prompt and appropriate action to address any incidents before it becomes user critical.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We use our own platform to operate a reporting scheme for users and administrators. Where appropriate, we advise customer users and administrators of an incident and if serious notify CESG or Cyber Essentials of an attack. Incident management processes are in place for the service and are actively deployed in response to security incidents pre-defined processes are in place for responding to common types of incident and attack. Our own platform defines the process and contact route for reporting incidents by users and administrators. Where relevant, incidents are reported swiftly to administrators and users by a suitable mechanism.
