: 60 minutes

Abstract
:
Oracle E-Business Suite ties into every aspect of your IT infrastructure and is “the keys to the kingdom” containing all your financial, banking, HR, and customer payment methods. Managing this critical infrastructure requires more than configuring your firewall and applying hundreds of critical security patches Oracle releases each quarter. A breach can result in direct financial losses caused by the inability to manufacture or ship. And the collateral legal damage of HR data sold by hackers can cripple an organization.

This session will review the four pillars you should consider implementing as a minimum-security strategy and will delve into the tools and technologies that can help mitigate the potential security risks in your ERP ecosystem.

Learning Objectives:
• Outline each of the four pillars of an ERP security strategy
• Define an execution strategy for each security area
• Identify the tools and techniques to consider for each pillar

Educational Tracks:
* #Upgrades  * #E-BusinessSuite  * #CloudMigration
