Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach For infrastructure we use an infrastructure as code approach, where changes are coded in configuration files and then applied. This provides a non-repudiable audit trail of changes.
For the software platform, we use agile development and continuous deployment techniques to create, test and deploy changes onto the live service without down time.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach We rely on third parties to disseminate threat alerts, we deploy non-critical patches on a weekly basis. Critical patches will receive more immediate attention commensurate with the risk.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach We use 3rd party active threat monitoring tools that use machine learning and known threat IP addresses to assess a wide range of threats. Responses to alerts will depend on the threat severity and may if necessary, result in immediate suspension of the service.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach We continually identify, assess, mitigate, report, and monitor risks. Management reviews and evaluates the risks identified following this procedure:
1. Identify – Identify technical and business risks to the organisation and operations.
2. Assess – Evaluates the potential impact(s) of identified risks, the likelihood of occurrence, and control effectiveness and maturity.
3. Mitigate – Control or reduce risk where needed, including the implementation of controls, processes, and other physical and virtual safeguards.
4. Report – Reporting and communication is performed to ensure that senior leadership, have visibility into risks.
5. Monitor – Identified and assessed risks are periodically reviewed.
