Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
EAMS Group aim for 99.9% availability of the service on a monthly basis. As part of the contractual agreement with the Client, a service credits mechanism will be agreed which provides credit to any Client where the service failed to be available for this target amount of time.
Approach to resilience
The EAMS Group service is hosted with Amazon Web Services (AWS) which guarantees a target availability of 99.95% uptime per month. In addition to this layer of resilience, Production services are installed with high availability disaster recovery / failover capability which is hosted in a separate availability zone within AWS.
Outage reporting
Any service outages will be formally communicated to the affected Clients as part of the EAMS Group major incident management procedure. Communications will take the form of formal email notifications and conference calls with the agreed stakeholders and escalation points at regularly agreed intervals until the incident is resolved.

Identity and authentication

User authentication needed
Yes
User authentication

Usernames and passwords remain the most common way of verifying a user’s identity. Stronger authentication (2 factor) using physical tokens and cryptographic techniques for enabled applications and remote access will be used where available. If required, integration to active directory LDAP services can be considered at an additional cost.
Access restriction testing frequency
At least once a year
Management access authentication
  • Limited access network (for example PSN)
  • Username or password
  • Other

Security governance approach
EAMS Group operates an Information Governance Group consisting of senior executive team members with the responsibility of oversight, guidance and approval of the information risk and incident management processes. A Senior Information Risk Owner (director) and Information Security Manager (senior manager) ensure information security governance and polices are adhered to.

EAMS Group's security policy details procedures to manage the reporting of information security events or weaknesses, information security incident management, collection of evidence, risk assessments and retrospective reviews of procedures as a result of any incident.
Information security policies and processes
EAMS Group operate based on a defined Information Security Governance Policy (available upon request). This is based on the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISO/IEC 27001) but also references other polices such as the HMG Security Policy Framework, ISO27002:2005, ISO27005:2008 and EAMS Group HR and Records Management policies.

With the advent of GDPR in May 2018, EAMS Group confirm compliance with all requirements of the GDPR act.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
The implementation of changes is controlled through formal change control procedures. They are documented and enforced to minimise the risk of changes adversely affecting operational systems. In emergency cases, to prevent system outages or recover a failed system, the emergency change procedure will be followed.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Technical vulnerability management will be independently conducted to reduce risks introduced through the exploitation of known technical vulnerabilities, and is carried out for all applications and operating systems and wider technical infrastructure. System vendor notifications are monitored by system owners for any alerts relevant to the EAMS Group IT infrastructure.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
EAMS Group, we, will detect, identify and manage vulnerabilities, threats, and security gaps to prevent security incidents as far as possible. Dedicated monitoring toolsets are in use in order to provide proactive monitoring of systems hosted in the EAMS Group Cloud.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
All information security events should be reported to the security mailbox and through line management as soon as possible following the event or incident. The primary point of contact is the information security team; all information security related events should also be reported to the Information security manager.
