Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
All changes are trialled in our test environment, with each client able to test new functionality in their own test environment before anything would be deployed to their live system. Assessment for security impact are done as standard testing for any new modules or functionality.

Changes to the infrastructure are made in line with our host's ISO27001:2013 processes. Services and components are tracked via secure CMDB through its life-cycle.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
High importance patches are deployed 14 days at the latest after release, and other patches would be tested in our isolated test environment to ensure stability and security before deployment to live.

Jobtrain is kept up-to-date about potential threats through multiple subscriptions to technology sites that share that information, as well as independent research.

Potential threats would be assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure that the correct procedures are taken to assess and protect against that threat.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Jobtrain makes use of NGFWs and IPSs, to ensure that sufficient monitoring is provided to detect and safeguard against attempts to access the data.

How Jobtrain responds and the speed of response will depend upon the potential threat in question, but Jobtrain aligns itself with industry best practices in how quickly it responds to potential incidents.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Jobtrain has a comprehensive internal policy for managing incidents, with established procedures for reporting to the relevant authorities (police, ICO, or other relevant agency) when appropriate.

Users can report incidents through our helpdesk or ticketing system, where they will be informed of when the incident is resolved and the steps taken to try and prevent it from happening again.

Secure development

Separation between users

Virtualisation technology used to keep applications and users sharing the same infrastructure apart
Who implements virtualisation
Virtualisation technologies used
How shared infrastructure is kept separate
Jobtrain provisions clients as single tenants in a multi-tenant system, where each client's data is kept logically separate in different databases which are isolated from each other to prevent crossover.

Energy efficiency

Energy-efficient datacentres
Description of energy efficient datacentres
By continual improvement of their energy performance to ensure the availability of information and of necessary resources to achieve any objectives and targets established. Complying with all relevant legal, customer and other 3rd party requirements and setting targets in the form of EnPI's (Energy Performance Indicators) in the form of overall electricity and energy consumption, achieving PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) figures for specific buildings and to achieve other specified local energy targets in the UK.

The above commitments will be met by implementation of an Energy Management System which is ISO50001:2011 compliant, identifying all areas of energy use, setting targets and objectives for reducing its energy, making energy efficiency a key consideration in the design, purchase and implementation of new processes, services and equipment. All employees are trained accordingly and information is recorded for access by customers and regulators. Continual monitoring and reviewing energy use against targets and objectives is paramount.
