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
Taekni follows ITIL change management best practice. All changes are assessed for their impact and risk, and implemented through version-control configuration management. All changes are validated and assessed for service impact potential, with rollback and mediation steps determined before any such steps are undertaken.

All services and servers have a detailed log of activity and change control requests, which can be fine grained for the specific service and stakeholder expectation.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
Taekni utilises Debian GNU/Linux LTS, with rapid patching. As soon as a vulnerability is reported and patched, systems receive those patches. The benefit of LTS is that such patching is guaranteed over a number of years without any danger of unintended version upgrades. Taekni is on the appropriate CERT lists, as well as embargoed zero-day announcement lists, so it can mediate known threats even before they have received an official patch. Taekni will specifically monitor for trends in application exploit and leverage its knowledge to provide agile solutions to such threats.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
Alerting and monitoring usually includes security and anomaly detection. Security issue are immediately escalated to the senior security team, who act appropriately based on the nature of the incident, up to and including the immediate segregation or even powering-down of affected systems for further analysis.

A range of security analyses are undertaken including file hashing comparisons, root-kit-detection systems and full log auditing. Once the scope of the incident is understood, patching, rollback or rebuilding as appropriate is undertaken before the system restore.

A full RCA is produced as soon as possible, within any agreed SLA.
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach
Taekni maintains formal incident response processes for common events. It encourages users to report incidents via the authorised ticketing system, or the support contact number.

Incident reports are provided once the full information and amelioration data has been collated as a document released to the agreed account-holder. Further discussions and meetings are encouraged thereupon.
