Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach MyOrb uses the Github System for configuration management of source code. All application change development is managed on a siloed principle, before deployment to a complete staging environment with full roll-back capability. A full assessment is comprised of tests for all known web application vulnerabilities using both automated and manual tools based on the OWASP test principles. Once a new release is resilient and performance is validated - with security sufficiently stress tested - deployment to live cloud is implemented.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach Threats and vulnerabilities are identified through constant monitoring 24/7:
- Categorising vulnerability into groups
- Scanning assets for known vulnerabilities
- Ranking risks of said vulnerabilities
- Emergency patches are done within hours depending on the nature of the issue with appropriate quality testing performed to ensure the stability of myOrb.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach Realtime monitoring is in place to monitor potential compromises, wherein Amazon Web Services communicates information regarding data breaches, should they arise.

Escalation processes are in place once any compromise is identified.
The degree of compromise will determine resource allocation and urgency of response. In most cases any compromise will be addressed immediately.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach MyOrb follows incident management processes designed to adhere to General Data Practice Regulation (GDPR) compliance requirements. Workflow is in place for:
- Conducting risk assessments for discovered security incidents.
- Notifying clients in the event a security incident occurs.
- Revising our annual Security Risk Analysis and Risk Management Plan as necessary.
