|Protective monitoring approach||
We monitor and log all data access, log on activity and other metrics to highlight a potential compromise. This is all in addition to the protective monitoring provided by Microsoft Azure.
When a potential threat or compromise is flagged, our incident process is invoked - this can be initiated by any employee.
Speed of response will be as close to immediate as possible with further action decided once the threat level is formally classified.
|Incident management type||Undisclosed|
|Incident management approach||
There is a common process for incidents and all incidents are managed by the support team.
