Agilisys can deliver targeted adoption training to the solution owners as part of the deployment of a persona-based solution, and if required, can extend this to the solution users. We also provide clear concise user documentation which can support successful user onboarding. Where further assistance is required, Agilisys offer extended user support services through the Microsoft 365 Modern Teamwork service in Lot 3 of G-Cloud. As part of our extended services, we can provide wider Microsoft 365 accelerated adoption programmes and ongoing support in addition to solution-specific training / on-boarding.

Information security policies and processes
The Microsoft Cloud Security Policy is available via the Service Trust Platform aka.ms/stp

THE APPROACH
An ISMP has been established to enable Office 365 to maintain and improve its management system for information security. Through establishment of the ISMP, Office 365 plans for and manages protection of its assets to acceptable security levels based on defined risk management processes. In addition, Office 365 monitors the ISMS and the effectiveness of controls in maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of assets to continuously improve information security.

The ISMS framework encompasses industry best-practices for information security and privacy. The ISMS has been documented and communicated in a customer-facing Information Security Policy, which can be made available upon request (customers and prospective customers must have a signed NDA or equivalent in place to receive a copy).

Office 365 performs annual ISMS reviews, the results of which are reviewed by management. This involves monitoring ongoing effectiveness and improvement of the ISMS control environment by reviewing security issues, audit results, and monitoring status, and by planning and tracking necessary corrective actions.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach
Microsoft 365 has developed formal standard operating procedures (SOPs) governing the change management process. These SOPs cover both software development and hardware change and release management, and are consistent with established regulatory guidelines including ISO 27001, SOC 1/SOC 2, NIST 800-53, and others.
Microsoft also uses Operational Security Assurance (OSA), a framework that incorporates the knowledge gained through a variety of capabilities that are unique to Microsoft. OSA combines this knowledge with the experience of running hundreds of thousands of servers in datacentres around the world.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
In support of the Information Security Policy, Office 365 runs multiple layers of antivirus software to ensure protection from common malicious software. Servers within the Office 365 environment run anti-virus software that scans files uploaded and downloaded from the service for viruses or other malware. Additionally, all mails coming into the service run through the Exchange Online Protection engine, which uses multiple antivirus and antispam engines to capture known and new threats against the system. Microsoft has its own Security Response Centre (MSRC) that also supplies information to all our customers covering the whole range Microsoft products.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
Microsoft 365 employs sophisticated software-defined service instrumentation and monitoring that integrates at the component or server level, the datacenter edge, our network backbone, Internet exchange sites, and at the real or simulated user level, providing visibility when a service disruption is occurring and pinpointing its cause.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Our Incident Management process is aligned to the ITIL Standard and has been audited and approved by external auditors as part of our ISO 27001 certification.
Agilisys’ Servicedesk function provides the single contact point for all Incidents, Requests and Changes. Operating 24x7 the service desk agents provide core services, including help and advice, and Major Incident Management. Accessible by telephone and email, once an incident call ticket has been raised, the desk retains control of the call. Escalations and communications including updates are accessible via the Servicedesk.
Major Incident reports are provided for all P1 incidents within 5 working days.
