The ISMS has been documented and communicated in a customer facing Information Security Policy, which can be made available on request. The Microsoft Cloud Security Policy is available via the Service Trust Platform aka.ms/stp

Operational security

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
Azure has developed formal standard operating procedures (SOP's)governing the change management process. The SOP's cover both software development, hardware change and release management. They are consistent with established regulatory guidelines including ISO 27001, SOC1 / SOC2, NIST 800-53 and others. Microsoft also uses Operational Security Assurance (OSA), a framework which incorporates the knowledge gained through a variety of capabilities that are unique to Microsoft. OSA combines this knowledge with the experience of running thousands of servers in datacentres throughout the world.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
The Scalable solution is hosted on Azure, in support of the Information Security Policy, Azure runs multiple layers of security protection. Microsoft has its own Security Response Centre (MSRC) that also supplies information to all customers covering the range of MS products.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402

This provides visibility of when a service disruption is occurring and pinpointing the cause.
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
