Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
As part of the set-up process WPC will work closely with the customer to customise and set-up the solution to fit your working practices. This is normally in the form of a kick-off meeting, followed by a period of system configuration. This is normally included as standard as part of our implementation package. In addition to the system configuration, we normally offer a 1 day training course for users, although this can be customised depending on individual customer requirements. We also offer a full set of user documentation including training and administration guides as part of our standard implementation package.

The standard ELVIS Cloud Software is offered as a multi-tenanted server environment within UKCloud. Separation between customers is ensured with completely individual databases dedicated to the customer along with dedicated credentials. Demand on the service is carefully monitored with additional multi-tenanted environments created to guarantee users are not affected by other usage.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
ELVIS as cloud software is delivered through the UKCloud platform, as part of their Standard service level which offers 99.95% availability. Availability indication based on an average 730 hours per month. Excludes planned & emergency maintenance. Unavailability applies to existing VMs where the VM becomes unresponsive due to a fault recognised at the hypervisor layer or lower:
• i.e. fault is not within the Consumers control (OS, Applications, user networks).
• Fault is within UKCloud controlled components such as the virtual infrastructure, storage, power and physical firewalls & routers etc.
• External connectivity providers (e.g. internet, PSN, GSi) and components collocated at UKCloud are also not included in the availability calculation.
Approach to resilience
WPC Software utilise UKCloud as our data centre partner, and definitions on the data centre resiliency is available through their own service definitions and assurance documentation. WPC can provide this upon request.

In addition, to the data centre assurance information on resiliency, a range of back-up and restore facilities can be offered. As standard, ELVIS is provided with a Daily VM snapshot for backup, and is stored for 14 days. An additional daily back-up facility is also provided whereby a scripted database back-up is taken to a secondary physical location in a sister-data centre (again with UKCloud). This ensures services can be resumed within a short space of time, with minimal loss of data. Additional resiliency options are available after further consultation with customers.
Outage reporting
UKCloud report outages through an online dashboard. This is managed by WPC Software as part of the service offering by WPC Software, with any interruption to the software service notified to customers at the earliest available opportunity by email.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
The status, location and configuration of service components are fully tracked through their lifetime. A Configuration Management Database (CMDB) is maintained through a combined process of automated and manual discoveries, ongoing monitoring and updates, and physical validation by asset protection. UKCloud’s effective management of assets has been evidenced during external assessments of UKCloud’s ISO20000 and ISO27001 certifications, undertaken by LRQA.

Additional information on Configuration and Change Management can be provided by WPC Software upon request and in consultation with UKCloud.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
The service is protected by a dual-approach to vulnerability management through both the application and processes deployed through our data centre partner UKCloud.

All solutions are regularly tested for security flaws and subject to regular penetration tests through internal testing and customer-provisioned independent audits. Internally, we make use of the Burp Penetration Test suite and Nessus scanner.

UKCloud uses Shavlik software to identify and deploy newly issued or missing software patches, and Nessus to identify vulnerabilities which are identified within associated networks. All operating system and patches are tested within a controlled environment prior to being released onto operational platforms.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
UKCloud’s Assured Platform is protected by a GPG13 aligned protective monitoring system, provided externally by QinetiQ and subject to formal DSAS accreditation on an annual basis. This monitors and alerts on the twelve control areas documented within GPG13 (PMC1-12) at the DETER Level, and includes the production and retention of user activity logs to support monitoring, incident identification, response and investigative activities. It also includes activities related to the formal notification to the relevant authorities (e.g. CESG, GovCERT etc.) as appropriate.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
WPC Software and UKCloud have formal policies and procedures for incident management activities, including specific activities for identifying, remediating and resolving security incidents.

All incidents should be reported by a customer to WPC, who will work with UKCloud through their Incident Management Policy. WPC's and UKCloud's documentation provide clear definitions of an incident. Any such reports received are logged through our comprehensive incident recording system and immediately forwarded to the relevant team for analysis and determination of an appropriate course of action. Customers are kept informed via email and telephone as described within our policy documentation and procedures.
