Claymore - Training Management

Claymore manages the Training and Exercise planning lifecycle from the automatic ingestion of applications and validation of information through to calculating landowner and lease payments. The training management process is dependant on cartographic quality mapping displayed on-screen and as high quality reports. Repeating exercises, booking, incident management, analytics and dashboards.

Differences between the mobile and desktop service
Transitioning. Current desktop service provides full cartographic quality data creation and editing. Mobile other than laptop is currently view-only. Product roadmap is to deliver text editing on mobile devices by end 2020-21 financial year.
Service interface
Customisation available
Description of customisation
System is configured via a data dictionary stored in Microsoft SQL Server which is available to system administrators. The Senior Users can also adjust user interface settings to provide localised customisation for their teams. As an example we have a current deployment with two regional offices sharing the same core database but with very different user interfaces and data sharing controlled via the data dictionary.


Independence of resources
As deployment is currently within Private Cloud this responsibility currently lies with the client.

Approach to resilience
Datacenter is managed by our client. We licence our service to be resilient within a single or multi-tenanted deployment. All of the data held within the system with the exception of background raster map tiles is stored within Microsoft SQL server which provides highly robust process to ensure system resilience.
Outage reporting
An email alert system is available though is not currently taken up by our existing clients.

Security governance

Named board-level person responsible for service security
Security governance certified
Security governance approach
Our security governance is subject to best practice, leading industry standards and closely aligned with that of our clients requirements.
Information security policies and processes
Our security policies are independent and in-house but ensure:

Authorised access is enforced,
All sensitive data is encrypted and verified,
All access is recorded and audited,
All data is transferred securely.

Board Level member has accountability. All policies and processes are subject to regular audit and checked for alignment with industry best practice.

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
Client defined process and policy are applied in deployed environments. Within our development and test environments systems are monitored with 24/7 automatic monitoring which alerts when predefined thresholds are approached. Requests for changes are detailed on the Change Request form and logged in the Change Control log. The originator obtains sufficient information to complete the Change Request form. The Development and Service Delivery teams then reviews, determines the resource requirement and carries out a risk assessment identifying potential risks and any additional mitigating actions. The designated Board level member is then accountable for authorising the change and ensuring its completion.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
We work closely and collaboratively with our clients and our supply chain to identify potential threats to our service.
Our development and testing environments are protected by industry leading threat management and anti virus solutions.
These sources together with Microsoft provide us with information regarding potential threats.
The time to deploy patches is dependent on supply chain but any judged critical are notified to the client immediately. Our target is to patch within one working day. As our "live" environment resides in our clients private cloud the application of patches supplied by us follows their internal policy and process.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
Within our development and test environments we make use of threat management technology providing us with a detailed threat report for every incident delivering high levels of visibility into network events.
Potential and actual compromise events in the production environment can also be identified and notified to us by our clients security team.
Potential compromise is assigned a priority in collaboration with the client. Incidents are investigated and resolved in alignment with the clients process and policies.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Common events are dealt with in a pre-defined way. All potential threats are sand boxed and analysed.
End users can also report on potential threats either direct to us via email or calling the helpdesk or via the clients security team.
When an incident report is required we will generally produce this within one working day.
