Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
SLA agreements with 99.999% uptime. The DR is completely developed, managed, and executed by Pi. In terms of RTO, this is virtually instantaneous, thus the RPO concerns are not applicable as the user will not be aware that DR has been invoked and the service has shifted to the DR location.
As described above Pi has build a dynamic DR environment that automatically and virtually instantly shifts service provision to DR if service at the primary facility is disrupted.

Users are refunded based on the agreement outlined in the individual contracts
Approach to resilience
In the event of failures any one of the website stacks can operate independently providing the full service with the current state of all data. Cluster replication ensures that all servers are kept up to date so all servers have current data and documents.
Clients will usually be configured with two servers at the primary site, Equinix LD5 datacentre in Slough. These will provide the service under normal operation. In addition we will run a single server at Equinix LD3 datacentre in Park Royal to act as a live offsite standby. Any one of these servers is capable of providing the full service. All servers are kept fully up to date via the clustering capabilities of Galera and Gluster.
Access to the primary servers is via our main load balancer in LD5, Slough. This load balancer will normally direct traffic at the primary servers in LD5. If none of these servers are available then traffic will be directed to the offsite standby in LD3. An alternate web address will be allocated on the standby load balancer in LD3, Park Royal to provide access to the same backend servers in the unlikely event of loss of communication to LD5.
Outage reporting
Resilience is configured on all Pi equipment - dual Internet connections, Dual Cisco F/W, dual core S/W, dual network S/W dual load balancers, dual servers, in the event of any outage or unavailabity of services the users are informed by email alerts and web based dashboards

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Change control policy enforced that defines and outlines the change management process where Information technology systems are subject to formal change control procedures. Such procedures provide a managed and orderly method by which changes are requested, tested, approved, communicated prior to implementation and logged and assessed for security impacts with defined change control process.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Network / Application vulnerabilities by Third party PEN Testers & QualysGuard, Vulnerabilities detection through service monitoring & Nagios Monitoring. Linux servers are protected by Selinux security patch updates and Fail2ban process running in realtime. Additionally the server internal firewalls are configured for required services - network, protocols and ports. Information on threats through security information web sites and by proprietary vendors
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
This is automated within Nagios - Nagios monitoring tool has a plugin for Cisco, Servers, Networks and Applications for realtime monitoring of any changes and is configured to send out alerts/warnings. Any failing services are detected and are picked up instantaneously Additionally, Cisco Firewall, Systems, Application logs are centralized on the log server for any forensic processes and requirements
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Change control policy is enforced and is managed through Jira, an internal web base DB application. Information technology systems are subject to formal change control procedures. Such procedures provide a managed and orderly method by which changes are requested, tested, approved, communicated prior to implementation and logged. All Incidents are recorded in a central document that is web based for data gathering that provides incident reports
