Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Initial client engagement is focused on a kick off meeting, which may take place in person or via a conference call/web presentation. This will define the scope of services to be provided, key client deadlines, data sources to be processed and loaded to the platform and information that will assist our project management team to design the database to the specific requirements of the matter. The initial meeting is followed by a training session, usually delivered online, where a small set of data is loaded to the platform and key stakeholders are introduced to the functionality of the platform, as well as the specific configuration that has been deployed for the team. After taking feedback from the key stakeholders, any further changes that need to be made are implemented by the project management team and training provided to the full user community, either online or in person. Our training programmes are also supported by user guides available in PDF format and other online resources.

End-of-contract data extraction
Clients have a variety of choices over how their data is extracted when the contract ends. The solution can be tailored to meet client and project requirements. A 'cold hosting' option can be utilised where we will continue to host the data (at a reduced rate). Users also have the ability to export their data into a set of native files, PDFs and with a word index. Users also have the option of extracting their data offline for use in their own offline version of the platform.
End-of-contract process
The end-of-contract process will be discussed at the project kick off meeting and again towards the end of the project. The process will be managed by the Project Manager and a solution can be created to meet specific project and client requirements. A 'cold hosting' option can be utilised where we will continue to host the data at a reduced rate. Users also have the ability to export their data into a set of native files, PDFs and with a word index. Users also have the option of extracting their data offline for use in their own offline version of the platform. The price of the contract will depend on client requirements and how long the data will need to remain active.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
We train staff to answer phones within three rings, acknowledge emails within one hour and escalate all unusual queries to their manager. We maintain a formal policy for handling queries and all personnel are trained in our escalation process. Specific service level agreements for availability are agreed with clients on a case-by-case basis.
Approach to resilience
The physical protection of all data centres encompasses multiple layers including 24x7 onsite staff, strict personnel access controls utilising badge and/or biometric access and mantraps, and 24x7x365 video surveillance both inside and outside the facility. Hardware, servers, and network devices are maintained on raised flooring and are secured in locked cabinets. Visitors must be escorted at all times, sign in, and be assigned an electronic photo ID badge that does not grant access to any raised floor areas. Further information is available on request.
Outage reporting
Email alerts are sent directly to the IT support team, who will then investigate and report back to clients confirming the start and end times for any outage, our analysis of the cause of the outage and how the issue was/will be resolved. Reports will also include recommendations for any future changes or upgrades if these are required.

Information security policies and processes
Information security is managed through a dedicated information security team who are responsible for designing and updating polices relating to user access, physical controls, network storage, appropriate use of systems and compliance with existing legislation. Policies are reviewed and updated on a quarterly basis. Mandatory training on security issues is provided to all employees when they join the company and at least annually during their tenure. Our data centre and operations centre have been accredited to ISO 27001 standard and as part of this certification we are regularly interviewed and audited by an external auditor - a process that evaluates our policies and practices to identify and resolve potential vulnerabilities.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
A formal Change Management programme monitors all development and maintenance activities for key systems, ensuring established policies and processes are followed. This includes a Change Control team which monitors and approves all changes. Documented policies and procedures are in place for software development and infrastructure changes which validates that a standardised and consistent process is followed. Software development change policies include Scrum/SDLC procedures, validation procedures and release procedures. All changes are impact-assessed including any possible information security related impacts. We use a centralised ticketing process for tracking requests and approvals for each change. Systems are restricted to authorised users only.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Continual evaluations of system and network security are conducted by a trusted external third party through regularly scheduled vulnerability scans and penetration tests. Epiq’s Security Team subscribes to multiple services for vulnerability alerts on deployed software and hardware. Daily reviews are executed by the Information Security team for emerging threats. Internal assessments are deemed confidential and proprietary. Patches are reviewed and assigned a severity level based on existing compensating controls. Epiq’s change management process governs the deployment of security patches. All patches are tested prior to deployment. The timeframe for security patches is governed by severity level.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Epiq has a comprehensive Incident Response Plan (IRP) setting out how we respond to information security incidents. These include (but are not limited to) system intrusions/misuse, or any situation where confidentiality of sensitive data, data integrity or business critical systems may have been compromised. The primary goal of the IRP is to restore normal service operations as quickly as possible, whilst minimising the adverse impact on business operations, protecting Epiq and client data. An incident is identified either by Epiq’s IT staff or in-place utilities and we have a response team in place to quickly respond and rectify any situation.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We maintain an Incident Response Plan, which sets out our approach to reporting and responding to security incidents. Employees report incidents to the information security team using a standard format document and the team is responsible for investigating the reported activity in a timely manner and reporting findings to the client, management and any appropriate external authorities as necessary. Incident reports are usually provided by secure email. Our information security team subscribes to various industry alert services to keep abreast of relevant threats, vulnerabilities or alerts from actual incidents.
