Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
The On-Boarding period is split in two distinct phases; technical and transition. The former will seek to conduct a rapid technical evaluation of an organisation’s extant IT estate to enable Tenian to advice on the optimal MIA implementation at minimal disruption. Consideration will also be given during this period to any unique requirements or constraints specific to the organisations ways of working. An agreed implementation will then be conducted against a contracted schedule of works in association with nominated onsite IT staff with any provisioned hardware (as required) transferring to the client’s inventory for the period of the service.
The transition phase will commence once onsite acceptance testing of the technical implementation has been completed. The phase will provide nominated personnel with both privileged accounts and functional training to review the web proxy console to undertake compliance of user activity in line with HMG policy. A user introductory brief will be delivered, and associated Aide-Memoire provided, to support the transition of users to the enhanced features of the web gateway and security controls provided by the bespoke browser.

Documentation formats
End-of-contract data extraction
A data migration period will involve the transfer of any user generated content or log data from the web console requested by the client where an acceptable means of onward information assurance can be demonstrated. If this is not available or practical, then all data will be deleted in accordance with government best practice using CESG approved tools and techniques.
End-of-contract process
The Off-Boarding period is split into three phases; data migration (optional - described above), hardware recovery (where relevant) and service termination.
The hardware recovery period will consist of the collection, accounting and recovery of User Access Devices, as well as any supplementary networking equipment provisioned under this agreement by Tenian, and transferred onto Tenian’s inventory.
The service termination period will conclude by severing the network link from onsite to the cloud hosted service. Any sensitive material shared with Tenian through the course of On-Boarding and maintaining the system we be destroyed or returned to the client as directed.
