Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Change management is implemented through the Zendesk ticketing system.

The ICT team will have the ability to manage the majority of change requests demanded by the business. This ability will be provided through Train-the-Trainer knowledge transfer training sessions delivered during the onboarding process.

Any requests out of the scope of the ICT team, can be raised to NFON using the same process for incident reports but flagged as a change request and not an issue.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Same way as the incident management process: A weekly internal review of all incidents is held to include all product groups. Whereby common factors and behaviors are identified, which may be causing incidents, analysis is conducted on the information provided, and where possible, the incidents are replicated internally on our test environment.

Capture traces are run to identify the problem, of which the results are then passed to product experts from Project Management, Research and Development as well 3rd Level Support who are engaged to identify the problem and proceed with a plan to resolve and deploy a fix.
