Every system at GitLab is assigned a critical system tier. The Security Risk Team owns the tiering methodology that establishes each system's tier. For more information about the methodology and inputs utilized to determine tiering, refer to the Critical Systems Tiering Methodology handbook page.
On an annual cadence, the Security Risk Team conducts a BIA over systems utilized across GitLab. The data collected as part of this process is used to ensure that various data sources, such as system inventories, are continuously maintained and up-to-date. For more information about the BIA process and procedures, refer to the Business Impact Analysis handbook page.
The TPRM Program is focused on identifying and assessing the incremental security risk impact that may develop over the lifecycle of GitLab's relationship with various third parties. Additional information on the scope of these reviews, including the various third parties subject to this program, can be found on the Third Party Risk Management handbook page.
