Welcome to Oracle OpenWorld 2017

Greg Jensen
Sr Principal Director - Security - Cloud Business Group


Welcome to Oracle OpenWorld 2017! 

There has never been a more exciting time for Oracle’s customers to hear from our leadership, solution experts and partners about the current and future strategies of Oracle Cloud Security.  It’s not too late to register for over 50 security sessions, hands-on-labs and demos, as well as sign up for one-on-one meetings with product leadership.  For complete session listing, click HERE. Oracle also introduces a new expo hall experience we call The Exchange, which provides a more engaging learning environment for Oracle’s solutions.  

Many organizations are looking to bring back key information to help address the growing risks and threats that they face.   Some of the key issues include the upcoming GDPR deadline, increasing data breaches, growing personal and corporate data theft, and too many alerts for current teams to address.  Most often, the solution has been to hire our way out of the problem, placing additional staff in the Security Operations Center to analyze the mountains of events to find the needle in a haystack.  

“Chief Security Officers are increasingly concerned about the human factor of moving to the cloud. Cyberattacks continue to become more prevalent while security organizations struggle to protect their growing attack surface amidst a severe cybersecurity talent gap,” says Akshay Bhargava, Product Executive – Oracle Security. “Organizations need more intelligent security solutions that can automatically detect, prevent, respond, and even predict future threats before they do devastating damage.”  

Oracle will be spending considerable time this week showing our intelligent security solutions that include new cloud security services that were recently launched, as well as major keynotes from Oracle leadership.   The event kicks off today with Larry Ellison’s opening keynote, streamed live here.
