Securing the Migration of Oracle E-Business Suite to the Cloud

Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is a complex application and houses an organization’s most business-critical assets. During this transition, organizations have the ability to improve agility, security and compliance while lowering costs through Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Database Cloud Services (DBCS). When migrating Oracle EBS to the cloud, the complexity and criticality requires that security be a key component in this transition. Aligning the appropriate teams and including security during each phase of the transition is the key to a comprehensive migration plan.

We will discuss:
  • Implementing advanced controls to stay in compliance with regulations such as GDPR and SOX
  • Automating vulnerability management and audit/ compliance workflows to increase agility and reduce cost
  • Aligning internal teams to achieve both compliance and security during a migration
  • Make security an enabler rather than a road block during your migration to the cloud

Understand the Risk:

For many organisations, digital transformations and cloud migrations are a detailed outline of business and operational plans to integrate, prioritise and fully utilise digital technologies available. While this plan has significant cost and productivity benefits to the organisation security is often a second priority or not in the scope of the project. Without properly implementing security from the start in these projects, organisations face costly delays or outages due to vulnerabilities or compliance failures. Beyond that, many organisations have not identified a plan for how they will migrate their most critical ERP applications and workloads in a secure way, putting their crown jewels at risk.  As you plan for the future, you must ensure protection of the ERP applications that run your business.

We will discuss:
  • How to align internal teams to incorporate security from the start
  • How to make security an enabler instead of a roadblock during complex projects
  • How to automate security processes and simplify reporting
  • Proactive ways to engage senior executives in projects with reporting
