Oracle Security Risk Assessment

Assignment

Colt, the computing and network service providers, had made a significant investment in Oracle technologies. Colt engaged Leading Resolutions to perform an intensive review and remediation programme across its complete Oracle estate as part of its commitment to maintaining high standards of security and confidentiality over customer data.

Approach

The review commenced with a gap analysis and encompassed an updated training and communications programme, an update of Colt’s group security and internal audit requirements and alignment of the Oracle estate with group security and internal audit requirements.

Results

Colt gained a deeper and fully documented understanding of its application portfolio and a number of areas for improvement were identified within the development and support life-cycle. Leading Resolutions’ work reduced Colt’s operational risk profile and delivered a consistent and documented approach to process and policy adherence for the future development of Colt’s Oracle platform. The work was subsequently further validated through the external auditor’s audit.

Leading Resolutions worked with diligence, effectiveness and speed. As a result we have the utmost confidence in the security of our Oracle database estate.
