Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Wazoku operates an Agile methodology, including full peer-review and security review as part of the software development life cycle.

All developers contribute to the automated test suite comprising unit and integration tests, which are automatically run against all code. Passing the test suite is a prerequisite to the code progressing in the SDLC. The test suite is peer-reviewed and regularly probed to ensure it is testing appropriately.

Wazoku has a dedicated QA team to complete automated and manual testing. Manual tests uncover issues automated tests don't and allow us to address issues before they reach the production environment.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
We run internal (quarterly) and external (annually) vulnerability scans and penetration tests. Actions resulting from these tests are incorporated into our roadmap and and development work required is prioritised.

We run monthly OS level updates against all virtual machines in all environments to ensure that the software they run and the packages they hold are up to date. In cases where a high-level vulnerability is released we will run the upgrade as soon as a patch is made available and we can ensure that any remedial action required will have the minimum effect on active customers.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
We collect all system logs to a central aggregation service. This allows us to identify and respond to peaks in traffic as well as inconsistencies in service response and use.

We make use of industry leading intrusion detection systems and review their output and recommendations daily.

We pride ourselves on responding immediately to intrusion events, both with remedial action and notifying customers.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We have a process for incident management outlined in our information security documentation. Users can report incidents through our Helpdesk software or to a representative of our dedicated Customer Success team. Incident reports would be provided for initial contact, regular updates and post mortem. This information would be available through email contact of key persons and through wider reports made available to clients.

Full Incident Response Plan documentation is available on request.
