Daily headlines remind us how security and regulatory breaches can disrupt and irreparably damage businesses. Security is critical to ensuring business continuity and managing risks for increased efficiency and strategic growth.
In March 2011, Oracle held a Chief Security Officer Summit for chief information security officers and chief security officers. The presentations at the summit were designed to help them overcome the historical notion of perimeter security, with its network firewalls, email gateways, and anti-virus solutions. The notion of perimeter is no longer relevant in an era of pervasive external-facing applications, cloud computing services, and outsourcing. Today's security executive needs to adopt a "Security Inside Out" approach, where information assets are protected all the way from databases to applications to end points.
