Were you at Alliance, Collaborate, Interact this year, or wished you were?

This year, as well as uploading my PDF presentation, I've uploaded a couple of additional files.

The one you may find interesting is a short form Security Check List.

You can find it here: 

This is a supplement to the Securing Your PeopleSoft Application Red Paper (it includes the link) and it covers a number of points I've discussed with customers over the years. I include most of the check list as slides in my session but the PDF is an expanded set. The check list also contains a number of useful links.

In the discussions with customers we frequently find there are topics they have overlooked because they don't appear directly related to PeopleSoft security, but they are part of the overall infrastructure security and often managed by people outside of the PeopleSoft team. It's more important that as teams are reduced in size, that you build collaborative, virtual teams in the rest of your organization. I hope the check list will also provide the conversation starters to help build those virtual teams.

If you think some of the points are  topics by themselves, let me know and I can work on building out the information.

I appreciate any and all feedback.

Oracle Critical Patch Update and Security Alerts

This is opportune, since the next Critical Patch Update will be released on July 19. You need to ensure that you, and other members of your team involved with systems maintenance and security receive these alerts. If you don't already, you can subscribe to the alerts on Oracle technology network, OTN.

Go to http://otn.oracle.com

Login with your My Oracle Support credentials.
Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click on "Subscribe"
Subscribe to security alerts.

By the way, anyone on your team should have an OTN account, it doesn't cost anything and doesn't get you on a spam mailing list, and they don’t need to have a personal My Oracle Support account. There’s a wealth of information on OTN.
