Oracle Applications include security forms that are used to manually create, modify, and disable user accounts and their responsibilities across Oracle applications. This standard user-responsibilities assignment process is inefficient and inconsistent where users are granted access without necessary policy checks and approvals. As the security risk is growing with the adoption of Cloud and Mobile, businesses are looking to streamline the user provisioning process by consistently enforcing access policy, such as segregation of duty (SOD) rules, before violations get introduced into the ERP environment, controlling sensitive business information to potential threats and vulnerabilities. We will share our client case studies to explain how you can automate onboarding, off-boarding and other administration user processes such as new hires, transfers, and promotions. We will provide techniques to automatically aggregate and correlate identity data from HR, CRM, email systems and other 'identity stores'. You will also learn to streamline the User Access Certification process that is a critical requirement of many data security and privacy regulations, including UK/EU Privacy Laws, and others. You will be able to apply this approach of regularly validating the appropriateness of user access privileges, to effectively meet audit and compliance requirements and improve overall security risk posture.
