Until recently, Oracle security was regarded as database security or application roles and profiles by the majority of the information security community. While both of these security methods are certainly necessary, many threats to-date have been overlooked by auditing and information security practices, despite the fact that these threats could lead to greater business risk.

The technical components of business-critical applications introduce specific security concerns that, if not mitigated properly, can be subject to cyberattacks with severe impact to the business. If vulnerabilities against these systems are exploited, confidentiality, integrity and/or availability of critical business information processed and stored in these systems are at risk of being compromised from internal or external attackers.

Download this publication and become informed with the latest information about current and future risks facing Oracle applications, allowing different actors (financial managers, information security managers, Oracle administrators, auditors, consultants and others) to better understand the techniques and tools available to assess and mitigate them.
