Many organizations struggle to mature their security and risk management capabilities as they leverage more and more cloud services. This session addresses real-world customer use cases, best practices, and technology usage for how CISOs are building and maturing their information security programs to address the proliferation of sensitive data in hybrid environments, regulatory compliance mandates, and the ever-changing threat landscape. Learn what technologies are a must in the minds of the security executive, the challenges and pitfalls encountered, and the incremental successes achieved.

2. Architecting Decentralized Identity Networks Using Blockchain on Oracle Cloud [CAS4562]

In this session learn how organizations worldwide are building decentralized identity networks to enable secure identity and attribute sharing using Blockchain technology. Such decentralized networks help strengthen user privacy and reduce the risks of identity fraud by placing controls in the hands of the user. For application providers, they provide a way to accelerate user adoption by integrating with identities validated by trusted identity providers. This session explores an architectural foundation of such decentralized networks using Oracle Cloud and Blockchain technology.

3. Oracle's Trust Fabric: The Foundation for Identity-Centric Cybersecurity [PRO4547]

Today's enterprise has to deal with modern threats and new attack vectors while driving IT modernization, cloud adoption, and digital transformation. Built on the industry's first trust fabric for identity and security, Oracle introduces the principles of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and autonomous cyber resilience to help enterprises adapt and rapidly respond to the emerging threat landscape. This session provides an executive overview of Oracle's vision and capabilities for modern identity-centric cybersecurity.

Speakers: Rohit Gupta, Oracle, Eric Olden, Oracle

4. Securing Cloud-Native Applications [DEV6271]

Securing applications in the cloud poses a new set of security challenges. Using traditional on-premises application security and depending on IT to secure applications do not work, given the dynamic and continuously evolving security threats. This session presents an overview of a new feature that is a part of Oracle CASB (cloud access security broker) Cloud Service, which provides granular application-level security for Java applications. Without any code or application changes, Java applications running in Oracle Java Cloud (or any Java container) are monitored for several common attack scenarios, including SQL injection, malicious website/database access, anomalous patterns, and alerting the developer and DevOps teams.
