Configuration and change management standard

Configuration and change management approach
All changes are subject to a defined changed control process. Netacea manages a CI/CD model for development and all amends are subject to security testing prior to go live as part of the automated route to production environments. ASV scanning is completed quarterly to comply with PCI DSS and full vulnerability scans are completed on new systems or systems that have changed significantly.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Automated vulnerability management is in place across test, production and desktop infrastructure. Patching is managed by weekly updates. Critical vulnerabilities are identified automatically and actioned as a priority. Reporting and audit functionality is available across all systems.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Full visibility of potential compromises to the platform is available though dashboards and alerted on through our escalation systems. Response to compromise is named in policy and consists of the following stages;

Formation of the security response team
Containment / Coordination activity
Notification to relevant parties
Post incident analysis and root cause analysis / risk treatment planning

Response to the compromise of systems constitutes an L1 priority and is therefore acted on immediately.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
All system components have associated run books available to engineers in the case of failure. Users can report incidents either through the ticketing system or via a 24*7 telephone line.
