This week, Oracle published a new white paper, “Security in Depth Reference Architecture,” authored by Dave Chappelle as part of Oracle’s Global Enterprise Architecture Program.

The executive overview includes this statement:

The traditional approach of securing the IT infrastructure is no longer enough. Today’s threats are multifaceted and often persistent, and traditional network perimeter security controls cannot effectively mitigate them. Organizations need to implement more effective, multi-level security controls that are embedded with their electronic assets. They need to take a holistic approach to protect systems starting with sensitive applications and data. And, they need to protect these key assets from both external and internal threats.

The conclusion states, in part:

Oracle’s security in depth architecture helps you prevent, detect, and respond to threats. It focuses on the most vital asset – your data. It starts from deep within the organization, protecting data at rest, in use, and in transit. It combines robust, proven application and database platform security, the latest in standards and technologies, versatile security services, and advanced monitoring and management capabilities, to produce a secure and cost effective solution.

The architecture presented in this paper provides a blueprint for security. It follows the most widely adopted security principles and best practices, and it describes a scalable architecture that addresses aspects of security that are critical to all organizations – data security, fraud detection, and regulatory compliance.

I hope you enjoy the white paper.  If you’d like to discuss, please let me know.
