Mvine staff are fully aware of their obligations with regard to the physical and information security of the Mvine software platform, our hosted services, and the protection of customer data. Mvine’s hosted services, provided by the IOMART Group Plc, are fully ISO27001 compliant. An internal risk assessment is carried out by the Directors of the business every quarter for all major contracts. Particular attention is paid
to the security of our service offering via regular penetration tests. Access to client data is restricted to the client and typically two of the Directors of the business and the senior client relationship manager.
Mvine – Information Security Policy and Management System:
Employees are briefed on their security obligations for each new client, in the context of the specific client requirements and policies, with regard to information and customer data security. Their responsibilities and specific client restrictions are explained prior to the commencement of a client deployment and employees are reminded of their obligations on a regular basis thereafter (at least every three months).
|Configuration and change management standard||Supplier-defined controls|
|Configuration and change management approach||
The IT change management process consists of different procedures:
Request for change review: Change coordinators use this procedure when they are dealing with change requests.
Change planning: Change coordinators and devs employ this process to prepare the implementation plans for changes.
Change approval: The change manager and approvers (e.g. customer) follow this procedure to approve planned changes.
Change implementation: Devs implement changes.
Change closure: Testers follow this procedure when they perform production tests after changes have been implemented, and change coordinators employ it when they close changes.
These procedures vary slightly for different types of IT changes and risk levels.
