The high level “Information Security Policy” describes the considerations to achieve the company information security objectives and is separated as follows:
• Technical Security Policy
• Physical Security Policy
• Business Continuity Policy
• Data Handling
• 3rd Party Supplier Management Policy
• Network and Infrastructure Management Policy
All of these policies are condensed to form the Acceptable Use Policy, which is trained to all new starters during their induction. These policies are reviewed at least annually prior to security retraining and after changes to compliance requirements.

|Configuration and change management approach||All change management requests are evaluated internally and if approved, signed off and approval is granted.|
|Vulnerability management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Vulnerability management approach||
We utilise a series of technologies and services to monitor our network for vulnerabilities.
Patches are reviewed, tested and deployed weekly in arrears.
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||
We utilise a series of technologies and services to monitor the network for potential compromise.
Should a compromise be identified remediation actions will be implemented as soon as is reasonably practical
The Investigation Team will seek further evidence, in order to eliminate false positives. Customers are included in Investigations, as the incident could be a benign activity known and authorised by the customer.
Once a compromise is confirmed then the response team will work with the customer to follow established response procedures to cover Containment, Eradication, Recovery and advice on strengthening security controls to prevent similar occurrences.
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||
The status, location and configuration of service components (both hardware and software) are tracked throughout their lifetime.
Incidents may be reported directly to the helpdesk.
Incident reports will be provided to affected users by email.
