DEVELOPING A COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY STRATEGY FOR ORACLE E-BUSINESS SUITE
Oracle E-Business Suite ties into every aspect of your IT infrastructure and is “the keys to the kingdom” containing all your financial, banking, HR, and customer payment methods. Managing this critical infrastructure requires more than configuring your firewall and applying hundreds of critical security patches Oracle releases each quarter. A breach can result in direct financial losses caused by the inability to manufacture or ship. And the collateral legal damage of HR data sold by hackers can cripple an organization.
This session will review the four pillars you should consider implementing as a minimum-security strategy and will delve into the tools and technologies that can help mitigate the potential security risks in your ERP ecosystem.

HOW TO OVERCOME TODAY’S IT STAFFING SHORTAGE WITH ON-SITE TECHNICAL (OST) SUPPORT
As departments learn to do more with less, IT staffing is not a top priority, according to a Syntax data study of more than 500 IT decision makers being released in January 2021. The study indicates that more than 3 in 4 IT leaders (79%) saw a reduction in headcount at the beginning of the pandemic as enterprises cut costs. This staffing shortage is creating increased exposure and risk to many enterprise IT departments.
One solution to this staffing shortage is to work with a third-party partner who can help companies with OST support, also known as smart hands. When companies outsource OST, they benefit from 24/7 protection from a potentially disastrous shutdown of IT equipment. This downtime can take days or even weeks to recover from, causing more strain on IT teams which are already stretched thin.
