Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach System changes go through a three sign off process so as to ensure all risks have been both identified and reduced to a minimum wherever it is possible.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach We ensure that all required security patches are applied as soon as possible and also test all new software releases on our test platforms before adding the software to our live environment.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach Ajenta monitor usage at a granular level and have automated reports that run every 24 hours. We also monitor traffic using a cybersecurity mitigation dashboard. Any DDoS attacks are tracked and if they do occur they are contained. Potential issues of the platform or supporting network are fully investigated. If a device is found to be compromised it is immediately removed from service & cleaned. If needed, changes are made to firewalls and other security items. As soon as we are aware of an incident occurring we will take the actions described above.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach All incidents are recorded and reviewed to (A) understand why the incident occurred, and (B) to review and if necessary change the process to ensure the incident does not occur again.
