Onboarding and offboarding
|Getting started||Training and floor-walking.|
|End-of-contract data extraction||Via the offboarding service (using AQL queries/REST APIs).|
Off-boarding is instigated by a client request or after expiration of the service agreement. Deletion of any virtual machine image and data will occur in line with the service agreement. Any required data will be made available using appropriate media, in line with the data security classification. After client notification that data has been successfully recovered, CGI will purge and destroy client data from any compute or storage device or media that remains part of CGI's estate.
CGI will deliver a smooth and secure off boarding process at the termination of the service. This will include: the decommissioning of relevant accounts; the extraction of data held on the system in agreed formats for on boarding into any new service; the decommissioning of any interfaces or integration points with third party or local systems; the engagement with any new service providers to ensure a smooth transition.

|Information security policies and processes||
Our group-wide Enterprise Security Management Framework (ESMF) contains protection policies covering information security, privacy, physical security, and intellectual property among others. Specifically for the UK there is the CGI UK SBU Data Protection Directive.
Inspired by industry's best practices, ESMF is designed to adapt and to address security needs and, effectively support CGI and is based on two fundamental elements, a risk-based methodology and a business-focused approach that allows security and business continuity to be managed and aligned with CGI’s risk tolerance while fostering a risk sensitive culture.
The framework sets the security baseline to protect CGI and client operations whilst allowing continuous improvement for security program evolution. It establishes an efficient governance security model, clear and formal security processes and a complete set of policies supported by standards to manage security and business continuity effectively.
|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||
Our Change services are aligned to ITIL. We use a standard toolset aligned to ITIL, OneITSM, which supports Change using incident; problem; release; knowledge and asset & configuration management functionality. We integrated this with other tools, such as #define (our production system for Applications Development), OWL (our Knowledge Management repository), BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (CMDB), PrimePortal (Service Knowledge Management System) and CustomerFirst (our User facing portals) to provide the appropriate functions for supporting Change.
Our Change approach incorporates categorisation and prioritisation ensuring we meet important targets and priorities and ultimately SLAs.
|Vulnerability management type||Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402|
|Vulnerability management approach||Vulnerability management. Occasionally, vulnerabilities will be discovered which, if left unmitigated, will pose an unacceptable risk to the service. Robust vulnerability management processes are in place within Microsoft Azure to identify, triage, and mitigate vulnerabilities.|
|Protective monitoring type||Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402|
|Protective monitoring approach||
CGI provide Pro-active system monitoring via BMC Patrol linked to our control bridge in South Wales. This helps ensure the effectiveness of the controls that are adopted and to verify conformity to the Microsoft and CGI cloud products information security policies and standards. The use of operator logs and fault logging ensure the identification of information system problems.
The Microsoft Azure platform provides protective monitoring which allows a service provider to detect and respond to attempted and successful attacks, misuse, and malfunction.
|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||
CGI’s incident management solution is aligned to ITIL. It aims to restore normal service level-defined operations as quickly as possible with minimum disruption to our clients’ business, ensuring that the best possible levels of service quality and availability are maintained. Our dedicated procedures, tools, roles and responsibilities for operational groups, client and 3rd party vendors enable effective management, coordination, resolution and recovery of incidents of all levels.
The process encompasses the following: Detection and recording, Classification and initial support, Investigation and diagnosis, Resolution and recovery and Tracking and communication.
