Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach Within the development cycle RIVIAM utilises Git and GitHub private repositories to manage code and publish to live environments.

From development, code goes into a test environment to user testing supported by Jira for bug tracking.

Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls

Patches are checked for every 24 hours and automatically applied to the instances.
Attack information is provided from internet threat services and also now from the NHS security alert service.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach RIVIAM utilises host intrusion detection service OSSEC on all its servers to ensure that they are not compromised.
If a compromise is found our policy is to isolate and then delete the impact instance.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach When an incident is identified our production team will analyse the cause of the incident, and where it's a critical incident what the immediate resolution plan is.
