Information security policies and processes
CCIT implements formal, documented policies and procedures that provide guidance for operations and information security within the organisation. Policies address purpose, scope, roles, responsibilities and management commitment.

Employees maintain policies in a centralised and accessible location. CCIT is responsible for familiarizing employees with the CCIT security policies.

CCIT has established information security functions that are aligned with defined structure, reporting lines, and responsibilities. Leadership involvement provides clear direction and visible support for security initiatives.

Policies are approved by CCIT leadership at least annually or following a significant change to the CCIT environment.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Changes to CCIT services and features follow secure software development practices, including security risk reviews prior to launch. Developer access to production environments is via explicit access system requests, subject to owner review and authorisation.
Teams set bespoke change management standards per service, underpinned by standard CCIT guidelines. All production environment changes are reviewed, tested and approved. Stages include design, documentation, implementation (including rollback procedures), testing (non-production environment), peer to peer review (business impact/technical rigour/code), final approval by authorised party.
Emergency changes follow CCIT incident response procedures. Exceptions to change management processes are documented and escalated to CCIT management.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
CCIT Security performs vulnerability scans on the host operating system, web applications, and databases in the CCIT environment. Approved 3rd party vendors conduct external assessments (minimum frequency: quarterly). Identified vulnerabilities are monitored and evaluated. Countermeasures are designed and implemented to neutralise known/newly identified vulnerabilities.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
CCIT deploys (pan environmental) monitoring devices to collect information on unauthorized intrusion attempts, usage abuse. network/application bandwidth usage. Devices monitor:
• Port scanning attacks
• Usage (CPU, processes, disk utilization, swap rates, software-error generated losses)
• Application metrics
• Unauthorized connection attempts
Near real-time alerts flag potential compromises based on CCIT Service/Security Team- set thresholds.
Requests to CCIT KMS are logged and visible via account’s CCIT
CloudTrail Amazon S3 bucket. Logs provide request information, which CMK, and identify the CCIT resource protected through the CMK use. Log events are visible to customers after turning on CCIT CloudTrail in their account.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
CCIT adopts a three-phased approach to manage incidents:
1. Activation and Notification Phase
2. Recovery Phase
3. Reconstitution Phase

To ensure the effectiveness of the CCIT Incident Management plan, CCIT conducts incident response testing, providing excellent coverage for the discovery of defects and failure modes as well as testing the systems for potential customer impact.

The Incident Response Test Plan is executed annually, in conjunction with the Incident Response plan. It includes multiple scenarios, potential vectors of attack, the inclusion of the systems integrator in reporting and coordination and varying reporting/detection avenues.
