Oracle Fusion Applications Cloud Security Takes Center Stage at ISACA

ISACA (previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) is an independent, nonprofit, global association, engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. In May 2014, Oracle co-hosted an event with the San Francisco Chapter of ISACA at the Oracle Conference Center to discuss audit and security best practices for applications and databases.

Nigel King, Vice President of Functional Architecture for Fusion Applications, delivered a presentation addressing how ten key security principles are implemented in modern cloud-based applications and demonstrated how these principles are adhered to in Fusion Applications. These principles include:
  1. Role Based Access
  2. Account and Role Provisioning Events & Workflows
  3. Enforcement Across Tools and Transformations
  4. Pervasive Privacy Protections
  5. Integration with Governance Risk and Compliance
  6. Transparent Security Policies
  7. Complete Audit of Security Changes
  8. Secure Across the Information Lifecycle
  9. Co-existing with your current Security Infrastructure
  10. Comprehensive Extensible Reference Implementation
