Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
The environment is monitored 24/7. The environment is supported 8/5 24/7 as agreed with customers.
Availability, response and resolution times are followed and managed and the incident are classified to four categories (critical, high, medium and low). For Critical and High level incidents the problem and root cause analysis are carried out.
At this point the SLAs are not sanctioned nor rewarded, but that can be discussed and agreed if required by a customer.
Approach to resilience
The environment is automatically replicated in multiple availability zones that are redundant. All the virtual machines and data bases are at least duplicated to allow system to continue running with any instance going down. All the data is automatically backed up and restoring is tested on regular basis.
More information available on request.
Outage reporting
Internally we have automatic notifications and dashboards to inform on any deviations from normal operations. These notifications are investigated and analysed to solve the incident promptly, but also to identify potential imporovements.
Our customers are alerted with email and in case of severe problems also over the phone.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
The infrastructure hardware is managed by our supplier including operating systems and middleware upgrades and batching.

Our software configuration management consists of revision control to determine what was changed and who changed it, but allow tracking and fall back options. Certain changes also require an internal peer review and approval.

Change process
- request is created using appropriate channels.
- ticket is opened and directed to the appropriate team.
- team investigates, requests further info and creates the plan with potential impact
- Plan is executed and set to 'testing'
- After testing / approval it is set to 'Closed'
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
- we do internal threat assesments on a regular basis and also utilise external consultants and tools to identify potential threats
- OS and middleware layers are provided to us by our services providers and we allow and request them to provide the barches as quickly as possible
- our own SW is patching is done based on priority and critical, high and medium levels are carried out immediately
- we get the information from 3rd party consultants, industry forums and various other sources such as webinars
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
- for protective monitoring service we count on tools and services provided to us by our service providers Microsoft as part of the Office 365 and AWS for public cloud
- once a potential compromise is identified, we follow our security management process to classify, mitigate, solve and learn
- depends on severity. For the critical ones the actions are started immediately
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Our incident managemnt process is based on the following steps
- documenting incident details either based on user call, email or web-form and follow up discussions
- Matching incidents against known problems
- Prioritizing based on impact
