Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability The application service availability target is set at 99.6% (or ~7.24 mins downtime per day).
The ‘worst case’ Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is 24 hours based upon a backup strategy of once every 24 hours. Real time data replication to a secondary passive data centre should enable near zero data loss in most failure scenarios. The ‘worst case’ Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is 3 days.
Approach to resilience The BiZZdesign cloud platform is architected for high availability with active geo-redundant failover and backups.
Outage reporting Via realtime monitoring service and prompted by mail

Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach All configuration changes are subject to test and approval by independent team prior to deployment.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach We ensure that any published vulnerabilities are identified, assessed for applicability on our service and where necessary suitably mitigated. We identify vulnerabilities from the media, vendors, we also subscribe to a vulnerability alert service, and staff monitor a number of discussion groups. The vulnerability is checked against the software used on our estate and where a match is found, the details are entered in our vulnerability management worksheet/database from where it is managed through to resolution. It includes:
Date, Source, Reference, Product/Version with vulnerability, CVE/CVSS scores, Affected Systems, Impact, Action, Status
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach The Protective Monitoring implemented for the service includes a central log repository for network, OS and application activities. It allows us to log relevant user activities. The system raises alerts on key security events and regular management reports are produced to show security related activity on the service. We have also implemented an IDS service to assist in the identification of suspicious activity.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach Staff are given guidance on what constitutes a security incident and are required to report such events to the helpdesk. We have a separate management instruction on the escalation and reporting of security incidents, including to external interested parties/stakeholders. All such incidents are recorded, presented to the security forum and analysed for lessons learnt purposes.
