Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach We operate to an agile methodology, and changes to our product are primarily managed by using Jira (to manage our change process), BitBucket (to manage our software), and Jenkins (to rebuild our software).

All our customers have separate siloed instances of our product. Access to those product instances and respective is controlled by username and password. We believe the potential security risks are low, however as the product develops this is under constant review.
Vulnerability management type Undisclosed
Vulnerability management approach We maintain active subscriptions with third party anti-virus and malware services. All our PCs are set to receive automatic updates of operating systems, security software, and other potentially vulnerable software applications (such as Microsoft Office). Our security policies and set by the company and enforced through Microsoft product and services.
Protective monitoring type Undisclosed
Protective monitoring approach We rely on 3rd party products to monitor all incoming emails and software. In the event that a security threat is identified (either by the software or an individual) this is escalated to the IT systems administrator and chief engineer. We respond promptly to such threats until the risk is mitigated.
Incident management type Undisclosed
Incident management approach As a start-up, we have no pre-defined processes for common threats. We maintain a specific email account where IT incidents and issues can be reported. Such emails are monitored, reviewed and appropriate actions taken.
