Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
We implement a comprehensive source code management solution based on Microsoft Dev Ops best practice that enables us to track every branch in our solution development lifecycle.  All changes are scheduled into a roadmap that is reviewed and signed off by our MVP (Microsoft most valuable professional) whose intimate knowledge of Microsoft's technical direction and security best practice means that we minimise security exposure.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
In support of the Information Security Policy, Office 365 runs multiple layers of antivirus software to ensure protection from common malicious software. Servers within the Office 365 environment run anti-virus software that scans files uploaded and downloaded from the service for viruses or other malware. Additionally, all mails coming into the service run through the Exchange Online Protection engine, which uses multiple antivirus and antispam engines to capture known and new threats against the system. Microsoft has its own Security Response Center (MSRC) that also supplies information to all our customers covering the whole range Microsoft products.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Office 365 employs sophisticated software-defined service instrumentation and monitoring that integrates at the component or server level, the datacenter edge, our network backbone, Internet exchange sites, and at the real or simulated user level, providing visibility when a service disruption is occurring and pinpointing its cause.

Proactive monitoring continuously measures the performance of key subsystems of the Office 365 services platform against the established boundaries for acceptable service performance and availability. When a threshold is reached or an irregular event occurs, the monitoring system generates warnings so that operations staff can address the threshold or event.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Clients need to log a ticket via our support ticketing system Gemini by login or sending an email to our Support desk that automatically generates a ticket. Incidents reports are based on monthly client time reports with an overview of all their time spent on support and we provide constant updates on the Gemini tickets with technical feedback and coordination.
