Operational security

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach In BetterCloud production environments, software updates are manually vetted to ensure the stability of the system. Changes are then tested and cautiously rolled out to systems. All development work is separated from the operation systems, testing occurs in a multi-staged fashion in both environments and in dedicated test settings. BetterCloud can share, under NDA, the SOC2 audit report (based on standards from the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board) which describes the change management process. Additionally, changes to code go through a process of code review involving additional engineers.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach BetterCloud solutions run on Google infrastructure which vulnerability management process that actively scans for security threats using a combination of commercially available and purpose-built tools, intensive automated/manual penetration efforts, quality assurance processes, software security reviews and external audits. The vulnerability management team is responsible for tracking and following up on vulnerabilities. Once a vulnerability requiring remediation has been identified, it is logged, prioritised according to severity, and assigned an owner. The vulnerability management team tracks such issues and follows up frequently until they can verify that the issues have been remediated.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach Focused on information gathered from network traffic, employee actions on systems and outside knowledge of vulnerabilities. Traffic is inspected at many points for suspicious behaviour. Analysis is performed using open-source and commercial tools for traffic capture and parsing, supported by a correlation system built on top of Google technology. Analysis is supplemented by examining system logs for unusual behaviour, such as attempted access of customer data. Security engineers place standing alerts on public data repositories to look for security incidents that might affect company infrastructure. They actively review inbound security reports and monitor public mailing lists, blog posts, and wikis.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach If an incident occurs, the security team logs and prioritises it according to severity. Events directly impacting customers are assigned the highest priority. This process specifies courses of action, procedures for notification, escalation, mitigation, and documentation. BetterCloud incident management program is structured around NIST guidance on handling incidents. Key staff are trained in forensics and handling evidence in preparation for an event, including the use of third-party and proprietary tools. Testing of incident response plans is performed for key areas, such as systems that store sensitive customer information. Tests consider a variety of scenarios, including insider threats and software vulnerabilities.
