End-of-contract data extraction Data extracts can be written by the customer or by Liquidlogic (at additional cost).
End-of-contract process Liquidlogic works with the customer to produce a high level Exit Strategy document and Exit Plan which details the methodology for data / service transition from the system. This will be actioned at the end of the contract. These documents would be expected to include:
• The management structure to be employed at contract end.
• Detailed description of both the data and service Transfer/Termination processes
• Scope of the Services to be provided at contract end
• Any Charges payable for the provision of Termination Service
Liquidlogic's standard approach towards the extraction of data at the end of the contract is to ensure that the customer has the tools and access to the data such that the customer has the capability of extracting its own data without automatic recourse to Liquidlogic. We will provide support to the customer in performing any such extraction activities, and if required we will be happy to provide services to more actively assist the customer in undertaking these tasks. This would be at additional cost and a quote for this would be provided by Liquidlogic.

Scaling

Scaling
Independence of resources Services are based on flexible and scalable server designs layered onto virtualization technologies. Allows horizontal scaling and vertical scaling to be implemented as required. All services are built from multiple servers so appropriate levels of scaling can be applied to specific areas to ensure application performance is maintained. The majority services delivered are from logically separate servers per customer ensuring no impact between competing needs of different customers. Where applications are multi tenanted, multiple design features prevent the impact of one user population upon another and we monitor all services proactively to anticipate and prevent problems before they occur.

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 Configuration and Change Management processes are managed in line with ISO27001, using the JIRA IT Service Management tool. The configuration and Change Management area of JIRA is visible to our customers, allowing them to see raised Requests For Change (RFCs) and track their progress. As part of the approvals process, a Risk Assessment is performed to reduce the likelihood of a potential security impact.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach We subscribe to multiple vendor , supplier and government ( NHS Digital CareCERT) security advisory emails and all advisories are assessed for risk and applicability to our technology and services and remedial action as required is scheduled accordingly based on this assessment. Routine patches are typically applied quarterly with any deemed higher risk applied out of normal cycles as required based on the risk assessment.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach We proactively monitor server and firewall activities for any unusual or unexpected activities that may indicate a potential attempt to breach the service. Should any such attempt be identified then appropriate remedial action will be taken in line with the assessment of the risk , typically this will include blocking source IP addresses as well as reporting to UK authorities.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach Users report incidents using the ITIL3 aligned ITSM, JIRA. The Service Desk has full online capabilities for raising, recording and monitoring issues including real time SLA management.
We have pre-defined processes in cases such as System Down situations which trigger internal business alerts to ensure the correct teams are on hand from the start.
Users can view the progress of any issue online with real time updates and create filters and dashboards of information recorded in the system and export data when required. Reports can also be provided to the customer on a monthly basis.
