🔒 Supplier Security Policy

It is important to Credrails that the relationship with our suppliers is based on a clear understanding of our expectations and information security requirements.

Credrails shall strive to monitor and review services supplied to ensure the third party does not represent a significant weakness to our operations.

Information security requirements may vary according to the type of contractual relationship that exists with each supplier and the goods/services delivered.

The following will generally apply:

  • The information security requirements and controls must be formally documented in a contractual agreement which may be part of or an addendum to , the main commercial agreement.
  • Separate non disclosure agreements must be used where a more specific level of control over confidentiality is required.
  • Appropriate due diligence must be exercised in the selection and approval of new suppliers before contracts are agreed.
  • The information security provisions in place with existing suppliers must be clearly understood and may be subject to changes where necessary.
  • Remote access by suppliers must be approved by the Chief Technology Officer and comply with the Credrails information security policies.
  • Access to Credrails information shall be limited where possible according to the least privileged principle and according to clear business need.
  • Basic information security principles such as unique accounts, segregation of duties, defence in depth must be applied.
  • The supplier is expected to exercise due care and implement adequate controls over the Credrails  information and information assets used during the execution of their work.  
  • Where defined in the contract, Credrails will have the right to audit the information security practices of the supplier, and where appropriate, the subcontractor.
  • Changes to services provided by suppliers will be subject to the change management process. This process includes the requirement to assess any information security implications of changes so that the effectiveness of controls is maintained.
  • Suppliers are responsible for alerting Credrails of an information security incident, threat or suspicious activity that may harm Credrails systems, information or clients when they become aware of such activities. Such reports shall be directed to security@credrails.com.
