We have implemented the Threat and Vulnerability Management to identify and eliminate problems that could lead to a breach of confidentiality, availability, or the integrity of application data resources and to ensure adequate protection of client data. The treatment of vulnerabilities consists of the definition and implementation of controls and measures to eliminate vulnerabilities
Technical vulnerabilities shall be identified: • the customer shall identify resources that will be used to identify relevant technical vulnerabilities. • An internal technical vulnerability assessment of all system components storing or processing the customer data and the related system components should be performed after any significant information system network changes and as a minimum once every 90 days. The parameters of the vulnerability scans have to conform to the requirements of ISR, ISO 27001, SANS and OWASP and other best practices. • The relevancy of published technical vulnerabilities may be determined by the customer through the Asset Inventory. • Intrusive scans of systems shall not be considered without appropriate understanding of their impacts to production systems and shall not be used without appropriate approval. • Technical vulnerability assessment tools (e.g. scanners, exploitation tools, scripts, configuration audit, passive monitoring, etc.) shall be pre-approved for the customer environment before it’s use. • An approved technical vulnerability scanner should be implemented and kept current with latest test definitions of signature database. • A continuous process of technical vulnerability identification shall be established, scheduled and maintained for IT and OT the customer environment.
We have implemented the Threat and Vulnerability Management to identify and eliminate problems that could lead to a breach of confidentiality, availability, or the integrity of application data resources and to ensure adequate protection of client data.
Technical vulnerabilities shall be evaluated: • Each relevant technical vulnerability shall be evaluated for both applicability and criticality. • Applicable technical vulnerabilities shall be recorded against applicable assets. This may be incorporated into Asset Inventory. • For all technical vulnerabilities determined to be applicable, the customer shall evaluate the risk to the OT and the customer through Risk Assessment Processes. • Remediation/mitigation and compliance reports shall be produced including topics such as: o List of Vulnerabilities - All discovered vulnerabilities, the severity, and the affected systems. o Remediation and/or mitigation recommendation - Each listed vulnerability shall have detailed information on how the vulnerability will be remediated or mitigated. o Non-compliance summary.
Vulnerabilities will be categorized as Critical, High, Medium, Low and Information. We remidiate all the vulnerabilities identified.
Technical vulnerabilities shall be remediated or mitigated in timely manner following Change Management Processes: - A phased rollout can be used to minimise impact. - Establish expected remediation/mitigation timelines based on the criticality rating level. - Any deviations to the customer defined management of technical vulnerability requirements should be recorded. - Risks due to deviations shall be managed to acceptable levels through compensating controls.
We have implemented the Threat and Vulnerability Management to identify and eliminate problems that could lead to a breach of confidentiality, availability, or the integrity of application data resources and to ensure adequate protection of client data.
