4. Secure Handling of customer Data

CMS’s role is to provide, connectivity, managed services and hosting facilities for the safe storage and transportation of customer’s data. CMS is not in itself an information controller of customer data and therefore does not access the informational content of any traffic passing across its networks or services (other than for virus and malware scanning, or for the detection of intrusion, abuse or criminal activity). Therefore, customer data is not likely to be disclosed to employees through the routine management and administration of the customer’s service, except where CMS has accepted specific responsibility for database management in the form of a managed service.

Employees and contractors are expected to treat all customer data as confidential and handle it accordingly. This includes but is not limited to customer names, contact details and account details.

As a condition of their employment all new employees at CMS are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement and a contract of employment which includes acceptance of company policy.

6. Security Awareness and Training

CMS maintains a high-level of security awareness within the organisation by ensuring that all new employees attend security training. CMS conducts regular internal auditing of employee adherence to security policies.

Employees are made aware that information security is an integral part of the day-to-day operation of company business; understand their individual responsibilities, and are aware that business and information security is as important to the company as it is to customers.

Training is enhanced throughout employment on an ‘as needed’ basis through periodic briefings, on-the-job training, security bulletins and advisory e-mails on specific security issues. Training is reviewed annually as part of everyone’s appraisal and personal development plans.

7. Physical security features

A variety of features are in place to maintain physical security at CMS Offices and the Claranet Data Centre facilities. The location of each site determines the external security features. Where a Claranet data centre is located off-street, palisade fencing is used with access control gates.

All sites have external and internal CCTV monitoring, intruder alarms and security guards. All doors have swipe card access in place. Claranet operate an ISO27001 complaint access control process which staff, customers and suppliers must adhere to gain entry to each data centre. A copy of the customer facing process can be requested from the Claranet Service Desk.

8. Environmental security features

CMS Offices and the Claranet data centres have been designed with a high degree of resilience to reduce or mitigate vulnerabilities to major threats. CMS offices and Claranet Data centres have the following in place:

  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) protection from power failure, including stand-by diesel generators.
  • Mains filtering and stabilisation;
  • Fire detection and suppression;
  • Water/leak detection;
  • Air conditioning and other environmental

Essential elements of our infrastructure have been designed with a high degree of technical resilience and are monitored 24×7 by our network and hosting operations centres using IBM Tivoli monitoring.

9. Operational procedures and responsibilities

CMS strives to continually improve the effectiveness and security of its internal operations, and in the way it delivers service to our customers. To support this goal CMS are an ISO9001 (pending) accredited company. Operating procedures are documented and maintained throughout the business and regularly reviewed by the internal and external auditors to ensure they remain fit for purpose. This service is also managed by the Data Control Officer.

10. Change Management

CMS operate strict change control procedures. Before any significant change is made to processes or systems, the employee responsible is required to properly plan the change and seek appropriate levels of quality review and approval. Change planning takes consideration of:

  • Need and justification for the change, including assessment of cost and benefit,
  • Assessment of risk and potential business impact,
  • Scheduling of the change to reflect urgency, whilst avoiding conflict with other activities or incompatibility with existing systems and processes,
  • Contingency plans in the unlikely event that the change results in unforeseen adverse consequences,
  • Quality checks by line management or peer review.

Where ever possible and practical, new systems, processes and changes to existing systems and processes are verified in a separate development and test environment before being launched into production.

Changes are scheduled through the Change Management and Development Team who meet every week to consider any new change requests and review the effectiveness of recently implemented changes.

The Development and Change Management Team ensure that each proposed change has been properly planned and includes test and back out plans. Where a change influences service availability, this is communicated promptly and effectively to customers.

11. Third Party Service Delivery Management

The CMS Development team are responsible for ensuring that services provided to CMS and our customers are delivered in line with service level agreements, and maintain appropriate levels of information security. CMS conducts regular service review meetings with suppliers and customers to monitor quality of service delivery. Root cause and corrective action is sought for any periods of service loss or impairment, particularly those that impact or threaten adherence to agreed service levels. Where appropriate, the explanation and remedies for such service impairments are explained to our customers in our Major Incident reports.

Service issues caused by 3rd. party providers are monitored as a part of CMS incident management process to identify trends in service degradation or underperformance so that prompt corrective action can be taken. Vendors are required to provide ‘Reason for Outage’ (RFO) reports in the event of a service impacting major incident.

12. Protection against Malicious and Mobile Code

CMS in conjunction with Claranet uses a variety of incident detection and prevention tools as well as web scanning protection as a core element of our security controls. This is designed to protect us from a wide range of threats to confidential information, unauthorised re-direction to inappropriate web locations, and loss of service performance. It employs multiple world leading signature scanning engines to deliver protection from the most sophisticated and targeted web based threats, including spyware, Trojans or other malware. It ensures that web requests (including web pages, images and larger files such as PDFs, or media) are free from malicious code before they reach our employees. The service also includes the latest URL filtering and DDOS protection and blocking functionality.

CMS has installed anti-virus software on all corporate PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Mobile device and portable equipment disks are encrypted. Virus signatures are kept up to date by an automated process which pushes updates to end-user devices as these become available.

In addition to this, Claranet on behalf of CMS also scans its internal networks on a weekly basis to ensure that viruses and malware have not been able to enter by any other means. Regular vulnerability scanning is used to detect weaknesses in externally facing IP addresses.

13. System Back-up

Claranet on behalf of CMS, performs daily backups of essential business information and services. A two-week cycle of backups is maintained, allowing data to be recovered to any point during that period. Additionally, up to 14 versions of changed files are retained, irrespective of whether these changes occurred within the last 14 days or not. CMS retains business transaction records indefinitely in a database management system. CMS does provide a full archive retrieval service to customers as standard. Additionally, CMS are able to offer a bespoke backup service to customers who specifically request it. This is agreed between CMS and the customer during implementation planning, and is set up accordingly by our operations team. Under normal conditions and unless otherwise declined by the customer, data is maintained for 10 years.

14. Security Incident Management

CMS has procedures in place for reporting, investigating and managing security and operational events and incidents. These are supported by a register to record events and track them to successful resolution.

There are 3 types of security incident;

  • Breach in Physical security (or attempted breach)
  • Breach in Network security (or attempted breach)
  • Disclosure of sensitive or confidential data (accidental or deliberate)

The response to security incidents involves;

  • Discovery
  • Immediate Response
  • Preservation of Physical Evidence
  • Inform & escalate

Escalated security incidents are recorded in the security register and owned by the Security Team. The nature and severity of incidents is recorded. Each incident is assigned an owner who is responsible for managing the incident through to resolution. This includes communication with, and engaging the efforts of all relevant parties, including customers and suppliers where necessary.

An internal report is produced which includes lessons learnt, improvement opportunities and a review of controls. Where the incident influences CMS’s customer base, a report is made available to the customer on request through our service desk.

An analysis of incidents is performed every 6 months to identify underlying trends and to ensure that improvement opportunities identified have been acted on.

15. CMS Approach to Business Continuity Planning

In the delivery of product and service to customers, CMS has ensured that all reasonable and practical measures are in place to provide resilience and incident management to minimise the effects of major events. Our partners, Claranet, achieved ISO22301 compliance to ensure that our Business Continuity Plan is kept up to date and regularly tested by an external party. We have a number of supporting processes that ensure the business runs efficiency during any kind of business or service interrupting event;

  • Major Service Incident Process – to manage incidents where the availability of services provided via CMS to customers are
  • Security Incident Process – to manage incidents where the security of CMS infrastructure or data has been compromised
  • Business Continuity Process – to manage incidents which effect CMS ability to carry out day to day operations.

CMS regularly tests its business continuity plans. Performance is monitored during these sessions and used to drive refinements to processes, tools and resilience measures.

16. Customer Responsibilities

Having Driver and vehicle solutions managed by CMS takes away a great deal of day-to-day hassle from our customer’s business’s. However, customers remain responsible for their own business continuity planning. Using additional products and services from our standard service offering, CMS through our partner Claranet, are able to provide higher degrees of resilience and redundancy to those customers whose services are absolutely business critical.

17. Data Protection Act

CMS complies with the DPA and is registered with the Information Commissioners Office as a telematics and communications provider. Training is given to all staff at the start of their employment to ensure that its implications are understood and implemented throughout the business. To comply with the principals of the act CMS never stores hosted data outside of the EU economic area.


CMS are committed to complying with the requirements of section 9 and 12 of the PCIDSS standard. This means that our partners data centres meet the physical security requirements for sites storing card data and have annual reassessments conducted by a QSA to ensure those requirements are maintained.
