Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach Changes follow an infrastructure as code approach, enabling changes to be reviewed and scanned for vulnerabilities prior to being deployed. Our CI and deployment systems are automated, with human gates to ensure reliability and effectiveness.
Vulnerability management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach Vulnerability scans are done on a regular cadence as well as part of any change. Scans result in either a logged notificaiton of success, or a triggered alert. If the software build or vulnerability scan alerts, the action in question is stopped until it can be reviewed and investigated. This prevents any code based vulnerabilities from reaching the staging or production environments.
Protective monitoring type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach All systems are monitored and logged. All code libraries are rigorously scanned on a continuous basis. Any Zero Day bugs are patched immediately or as soon as a patch is available. CVE are verified continuosly by scanning code in our repositories for vulnerabilities and ClamAV for viruses.
Incident management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach Incidents can be reported from systems or any individual. Incidents generate a ticket in our system of record, and are triaged to determine severity (if required). Key groups are alerted, and a record of actions begins. Depending on the type of incident a response plan is initiated, providing procedures for investigation, preservation, notifications, and forensics.
