Security governance

Named board-level person responsible for service security
Security governance certified
Security governance approach
Security governance is an area where we apply continuous improvement, we review our internal policies regularly to ensure they are effective. These processes outline preventative measures in place to mitigate operational issues, and corrective actions to minimise impact should an incident occur.
Information security policies and processes
We use information security policies and processes we have developed internally, which are based on expertise collated from industry best practices and our clients requirements who operate across sectors with a great need for data security, specifically those operating within the UK Defence space.

The structure for improving and following policies spans the business, from developers providing recommendations on new secure technologies, to our CEO working closely with clients to improve our existing processes.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Change management is performed through use of modern software tools and established change management processes. Code is versioned through source control and deployed on sandbox systems to allow thorough testing, before a change is deployed to clients. Changes are tracked using an internal system, customers can call to request an update on progress, or access the change management portal directly.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Regular vulnerability scans are scheduled on our cloud service to ensure new vulnerabilities are identified swiftly and can be patched. Once a vulnerability is visible, it is scheduled into development as a priority to ensure it can be deployed quickly and the service remains secure.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Application and hardware logs are utilised internally to monitor any potential risks or threats. This includes the use of alerts which allow us to respond and mitigate potential issues quickly.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Incidents can be triggered by automated alerts, or users contacting us by phone or email. Once an incident has been raised, it is assessed in line with our support levels to determine the scale and severity of the incident. Incidents of small-severity can be tracked within an online system, those larger in scale will be led by an Incident Manager who will keep the afflicted parties informed and later provide an incident report on what happened, what action we have taken, and any action users should take.
