Service interface Yes
Description of service interface Our modern interfaces are developed using the Pulsar user interface framework. The platform uses responsive web design to allow the same interfaces to adapt and be displayed on devices of different dimensions. This means that both desktop and mobile users can access the same features in the same place, giving a consistent experience across all a user's devices. The interface is tested using desktop screenreader software, and our text editor supports a variety of screenreaders including JAWS, VoiceOver, NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) and ChromeVox.

Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach Initial service configuration is committed to GIT repositories. Any future configuration changes are first tested on DEV systems from where they are deployed to UAT and finally after customer approval to LIVE.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach Our sysadmin team members are subscribed to various vulnerability publishing lists e.g. Any published and relevant vulnerabilities affecting the application stack are carefully reviewed. If a vulnerability is discovered that affects any of the stack components and a vendor patch is available Jadu will attempt to contact the customer to establish a suitable time for updating the affected software. If customer data or reputation is at risk and customer is unreachable within a reasonable time window we will apply the patch in emergency immediately.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach We uses internal and external monitoring systems to monitor server health in real time. Our hosting platform is also protected by a web application firewall which protects web application behind it from various web attacks (e.g. SQL injection or cross site scripting). The infrastructure is constantly being monitored by an IDS solution provided by AlertLogic where any suspicious network activities are analysed by a AlertLogic engineers and if confirmed to be malicious by default the offending IP will get a default 24h shunt.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach An incident will be reported via portal or telephone, or identified by our service desk team. The service desk team will analyse the incident and gather as much information as possible from log files, investigations etc and will at the same time make senior management aware of the incident and escalate appropriately in accordance with our defined escalation procedures Following an incident, a report will be compiled and shared with the customer and any further actions clearly identified. All incidents are reviewed by our security council quarterly and this process is subject to external audit via our ISO27001 accreditation.
