Hello OpenWorld attendees! I'm writing from the field of Oracle Park with a front row view of Mission: Impossible Fallout! What an exciting event enjoying movie snacks and good company. I hope everyone had an exciting start to OpenWorld and perhaps a few of you reading this were out watching the movie with me. Don't forget to join FitFest.19 this morning to work off the pretzels and popcorn! Tuesday is full of exciting sessions you won't want to miss, but first, I wanted to point out a few of the key announcements and sessions from today! With so much going on at OpenWorld, we know it isn't possible to catch every session, so visit us here each morning for a little recap of the night before and a few key to dos for the day.
A few recaps from the day:
Today was an exciting day for Oracle Database Security, the week kicked off with several sessions including Vipin Samar's session, Database Security in 2019: The Innovation Rate Accelerates where Vipin shared that data breaches are up 54% in 2019. Attacks are more pervasive than ever and over 107 countries have now implemented data privacy laws. Oracle is happy to announce Oracle Data Safe.Product Manager, Bettina Schaeumer gave us a first look at Data Safe and there is more to come. Join the Oracle Database team for their Hands-on Labs to get a first look at product hands on and join Michael Mesaros, Director, Database Security Product Management, on Thursday from 9am-9:45am in Moscone South (Espalande Ballroom) Room 155B. The session, Oracle Data Safe: Securing Databases in Oracle Cloud, covers the exciting new cloud service, which provides you with a single pane of glass to assess configuration risk and evaluate database users.
We Learned That Security Can Be an Enabler to the Cloud
Vice President of Product Marketing for Security, Fred Kost, sat down with a panel of customers and security professionals to hear their perspectives on moving to the cloud securely. It was a great conversation covering what it takes for organizations to move to the cloud, including getting key stakeholders to buy in, considering your compliance needs early, and dreaming big about the possibilities you have in the cloud. The participants in the panel suggested the importance of understanding the shared responsibility model, setting expectations with your cloud provider, and understand your compliance needs across your multi cloud environment.
"It isn't about whether the cloud is secure….it's about how securely you are using it" Laurent Gil, Product Strategy Architect for OCI Development,. A variety of sessions covered the great work customers have been doing with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, as innovations continue to be made in industries around the world, Oracle continues to invest money and resources in the best and brightest personnel for the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
