We have a corporate culture that ensures accountability for related decisions.
We work to ensure that feedback is provided to decision-makers on the impact of their choices.
We continously monitor our approach to make sure its fits our wider organisational approach to governance.

|Configuration and change management standard||Supplier-defined controls|
|Configuration and change management approach||Thrive tracks all key assets through their life cycle via a central register and when any key asset is changed, removed, or introduced Thrive has an established risk analysis process, which includes a security analysis of any key changes. Significant changes to Thrive's risk profile require director level sign off.|
|Vulnerability management type||Supplier-defined controls|

Thrive performs automated and manual quality assurance and security testing on every major release.
Vulnerabilities and potential threat intelligence is sourced from external news sources and relationships with key industry advisors.
Issues and vulnerabilities are tracked in Thrive task management system and addressed per priority.
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||
We have a detailed intrusion detection and monitoring system with 24/7 alerting in place.
We have an established incident response plan that involves employees at all levels of the organisation, including director level. At the heart of this is open and clear communication with our clients about verified incidents and resolutions.
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||The process starts by educating staff how to report a breach or deal with a report from the outside. Once our incident response process is triggered by a breach report a designated team of senior management is convened who directly oversee the investigation and remediation of the breach. This includes alerting users (via phone or email as contractually defined) and government entities as appropriate. After this we have a structured postmortum and process improvement process.|
