Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach Our online services are monitored by various sources, alerting to unusual access patterns, possible vulnerabilities, and interruptions to service. These alerts and logs are actively monitored by key technical staff. Issues identified are assessed based on security and operational impact. High-risk issues are patched and services updated with 24 hours. Through our Intrusion Protection Service subscriptions, we have access to wider industry reporting on potential threats.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach Our online services are monitored by various sources, alerting to
unusual access patterns, possible vulnerabilities, and interruptions to service. Our response to any potential issue is to identify the affected services and nature of the compromise. Take a point in time copy of any infrastructure supporting the service potentially compromised to enable post-restoration analysis. Take action to prevent future compromises. Restore services to pre-compromised state with appropriate patching.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach We have a predefined process for security and operational incident management that covers identification, resolution, and reporting. Incidents can be reported through our support channels. How the incidents are reported is dependant on the severity of the incident.
