Response Protocol - Incident and Data Breach

We follow a 5 step incident response protocol adopted from our work with the Microsoft Azure Cloud team.

If one of OKTA or MongoDB Atlas experiences a breach, our policy is to disclose the following information:

  • If a breach occurred (at any level)
  • What sensitive information, if any, has been compromised
  • The time to resolve the breach (depending on what has occurred)*

Our summarized process is:

  • Contact the service provider
  • Review the data (logs)
  • Identify the information to confirm what, if anything, was compromised 
  • Notify our customer

Our typical response time for all incidents is 24 hours or less for the initial service provider breach notification.

Support Requests

Every TIQ Software project comes complete with help for administrators and end-users.

If you or your audience is having trouble, they can submit a request through TIQ which is collected by our Zendesk integration, and triaged with an initial automated response confirming that we've received the ticket. 

Our internal team reviews all support tickets as follows:

  • Technical Issues - we respond in a timely manner (usually 24 hours or less) during normal business hours - Monday to Friday 9am-5pm MST
  • Content Issues - reviewed directly with our project partner before either a) the customer responds directly or our team is instructed to respond to the end-user (to ensure the accuracy of the reply).
