Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Service availability is 99.5%. User refunds are negotiated as part of the contract (if required)
Approach to resilience Experian backs up all data that has an on-going business value for operational recovery purposes and to comply with business continuity plans. Backups are regularly tested for reliability and integrity, and restoration procedures are tested for effectiveness and acceptable performance. The confidentiality, integrity and availability of backup media is protected in storage using physical, environmental and technical controls, such as secure storage and encryption. The primary data resides in Fairham House datacentre and backup data is transferred over dedicated dark fibre links to Experian’s DR site in Bulwell. This is a very secure transfer method and the data cannot be intercepted. This data then resides on tapes in robotic silo’s and NEVER leaves this location physically, if the data is needed, it will be recalled over the same dedicated dark fibre links to Fairham.

Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach All modifications and improvements to Experian's information systems will be managed through a controlled change management process. Experian have a Change Management Policy which is underpinned by processes and procedures based on ITIL best practice. This is a mature process implemented in 2000. We use a Service Management tool that integrates Change Management, Incident Management, Problem Management, Configuration Management and Knowledge Management. Our Change Management policy, process and procedures are regularly audited by independent auditors. Experian business units will establish and maintain a process for documenting proposed changes to information systems.
Vulnerability management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach In line with our Global Information Security Policy, Experian performs regular vulnerability and integrity checks of our systems. The scheduling varies depending on criticality and exposure of the system being checked Experian has regular network security assessment conducted of both internal and external deployments, in which the Firewall Infrastructure is tested, including internal components, applications, and employed servers Vendor software patches are applied on a monthly cycle with a risk-based approach taken to prioritisation via an automated Patch & Fix strategy which is underpinned with a technology infrastructure to deliver corrective updates.
Protective monitoring type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach Monitoring processes and tools are in place to manage alarms generated by security related alerts and these are fed into the incident management process. Experian has a formally documented risk based incident management process to respond to security violations, unusual or suspicious events and incidents. In the event an incident occurs a team of experts from all relevant areas of Experian are gathered to form an incident response team, who manage activities until resolution. The incident response team are available 24/7 to resolve any incident. Out of core hours the dedicated incident hotline is routed to the command centre.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach The incident management process incorporates a number of participants and contributors, including: Global Security Office - who facilitate and coordinate activities under the business security coordinator's guidance; Business Security Coordinator - a representative of the impacted business area, responsible for coordinating resolution activities; Incident Response Team (IRT) - IRT is made up of a membership that are empowered to make key decisions surrounding the actions to be taken to reduce impact, control actions, and impose corrective activities. A client report would be created, including: high level overview; facts; overview of events; actions taken.
