Identity and authentication
|User authentication needed||Yes|
|Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels||
For service components managed by Oracle, Oracle’s access to Your Content is restricted to authorized staff on a need to know basis.
Oracle uses the principle of "Least privilege" in which user permissions and system functionality are carefully evaluated and access is restricted to the resources required for users or systems to perform their duties.
Oracle Cloud operations teams access Services environments through a DMZ environment inside a dedicated extranet isolated from Oracle's internal corporate networks. Only approved operations and support engineers with a valid account can access a customer environment using multi-factor authentication through a virtual private network (VPN).

|Security governance approach||
Oracle has adopted security controls and practices for Oracle Cloud Services that are designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Your Content that is hosted by Oracle in Your Oracle Cloud Services environment and to protect Your content from any unauthorized processing activities such as loss or unlawful destruction of data. Oracle continually works to strengthen and improve those security controls and practices.
Oracle Cloud Services operates under practices which are aligned with the ISO/IEC 27002 Code of Practice for information security controls, from which a comprehensive set of controls are selected.
|Information security policies and processes||
Oracle’s overarching Organizational Security is described in the Oracle Security Organization Policy and the Oracle Information Security Policy.
The Chief Corporate Architect, who reports directly to the CTO, manages the functional departments directly responsible for identifying and implementing security controls at Oracle . The Global Information Security, Global Product Security, Global Physical Security, and Oracle Security Architecture organizations comprise Oracle Corporate Security, which provides in dependent security policy, guidance and compliance oversight to Oracle worldwide.
The Oracle Security Oversight Committee (OSOC) oversees the implementation of Oracle-wide security programs, including security
policies and data privacy standards. The OSOC is chaired by Oracle’s
CEO, General Counsel, and Chief Corporate Architect.
|Configuration and change management standard||Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402|
|Configuration and change management approach||
Oracle Cloud Operations performs changes to cloud hardware infrastructure, operating software, product software, and supporting application software that is provided by Oracle to maintain operational stability, availability, security, performance, and currency of the Services. Oracle follows formal change management procedures to review, test, and approve changes prior to application in the production service.
The Oracle Cloud quality assurance process includes security-specific test plans. These test plans include the review of data visibility, access control, password control, administrative privileges, end-user role privileges, and data access rules. Security-specific testing focuses on operation and processing according to the Oracle Cloud design and specifications.
|Vulnerability management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Vulnerability management approach||Vulnerability assessment tools are used to identify security threats and vulnerabilities in the Cloud Services and Services environments. Formal procedures are in place to assess, validate, prioritize, and remediate identified issues. Oracle subscribes to vulnerability notification systems to stay apprised of security incidents, advisories, and other related information. Oracle acts on the notification of a threat or risk once it has confirmed that, both, a valid risk exists and that the recommended changes are applicable to Services environments.|
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||Oracle evaluates incidents that create suspicions of unauthorized access to or handling of customer data whether the data is held on Oracle hardware assets or on the personal hardware assets of Oracle employees and contingent workers. When Oracle's GIS organization is informed of such incidents, it defines escalation paths and response teams to address those incidents. GIS will work with the Customer, internal LoBs, the appropriate technical teams, and law enforcement where necessary to respond to the incident. The goal will be to restore confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the Customer's environment, and to establish root causes and remediation steps.|
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||
Oracle employees are required report suspected incidents in accordance with the Oracle Information Security Incident Reporting and Response Policy.
Every Cloud Service user is responsible for reporting information security issues. Customers can formally report security concerns according to the terms specified in the ordering document and according to the following information:
Reporting security vulnerabilities - An Oracle Cloud Services customer can use the Cloud Customer Support Portal
Report privacy concerns to Oracle’s Privacy office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Incident reports and updates will be provided to the designated customer contacts.
