|Configuration and change management standard||Supplier-defined controls|
|Configuration and change management approach||
All of our base code is managed via BitBucket (GIT) and applied to the site following approval from either our product manager OR client.
Our solution is built up of different modules which are joined together for client requirements - these each have to be security, unit and developer tested before they are pushed to a staging environment.
Untested code cannot pass out of the environment to production.
Each deployment is managed by Deployer allowing us to review what is deployed and facilitate a roll back when required.
|Vulnerability management type||Undisclosed|
|Vulnerability management approach||
Threats are evaluated by severity and risk - this determines the response times allocated (High Severity and High risk being scheduled first)
Patches are deployed within days of receiving them
Information is gathered from a variety of online sources and also our own testing.
We use Foregenix to help us understand these vulnerabilities.
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||
We use several outside agency resources for this including (But not limited to):
When we are notified of a compromise this raises an alert on our ticketing system which then begins the process.
For a compromise we then alert our clients to allow them to decide whether or not to begin a 'problem process'.
Incidents are responded to within the SLAs provided.
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||
We have a comprehensive incident management process which includes a process for support to be instigated.
This details the route for support to be raised and notification process.
Where required we also can provide RCA reports post event.
