|Information security policies and processes||
1. Incident Reporting
All Information Security incidents (including loss or potential loss/breaches of data) are recorded in an incident log. The Data Security Officer is notified in all instances. The Data Security Officer will then coordinate the response.
2. Impact Assessment
Once an incident has been reported an assessment will be undertaken to determine the scope, impact, root cause and necessary steps to resolve the incident. The incident will be categorised as low, medium or high.
3. Incident Escalation
If a medium or high security incident has been identified during the impact assessment then it will be escalated to senior management. If your data or service is affected then Brightwave's Data Security Officer will contact your designated security person.
4. Incident Resolution
The Data Security Officer will manage the implementation of the resolution across appropriate teams and the communication of progress with all parties. Timeframes for the resolution will vary depending on the severity and form of the incident.
5. Post Incident Review
Every incident once resolved will be analysed in more depth to discover the root cause. This information is then used to improve processes, controls and platform robustness to mitigate recurring incidents in the future.
