Systems Risk Services is now an approved G-Cloud 8 supplier of Specialist Cloud Services which means that public sector organisations can now take advantage of our unique Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Security and Controls Health Check for Cloud.
We are very pleased to announce that our application to become a G-Cloud 8 approved supplier of Specialist Cloud Services has been successful.
Our unique solution uses our bespoke tools to help address the gap in Oracle EBS Security and Controls reporting capabilities. The reports we produce will help you both identify and address your EBS security and control issues now, along with highlighting areas of particular focus should you be preparing for a move to Oracle Cloud ERP in the future. Indeed, 8 of the 11 EBS security and controls issues we most commonly identify would impact on Cloud security too.
What are the benefits of our Health Check for Cloud?
For many organisations, a move to Cloud is being considered for the future – but are you really prepared for it? With Oracle EBS having numerous security and controls weaknesses out of the box, and with the majority of these likely to have an impact on a move to Cloud, it’s imperative to review the systems set up, processes, privileges and user activity to understand the issues that apply to your organisation and how you might overcome these.
With very limited reporting capability available by default within Oracle EBS to help you identify issues and exceptions, for most organisations it is not possible to determine their key security and controls challenges.
Our bespoke reporting tools gather information which help us to prepare you now, for a possible future move to the Cloud by:
- Highlighting security and control weaknesses and the risks associated
- Recommending realistic solutions to mitigate these risks
- Flagging issues that will remain issues in Oracle Cloud ERP
Our bespoke tools deliver a wealth of information
Our Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Security and Controls Health Check for Cloud uses a combination of our bespoke assessment services which have been developed by our UK-based Oracle ERP Risk experts. These are unique to Systems Risk Services and cover:
- Application Security
- Access Controls and Segregation of Duties
- Automated Business Process Controls
- Business Process Exceptions
Our services don’t need any additional licensing, tools or hardware and are delivered by our Oracle Security experts.
In terms of delivery, we gather essential information to help us prepare you for a move to Cloud.
For example, our Application Security service shows key security controls such as system administrators, password controls and inactive users. This complements the output from our Access Controls and Segregation of Duties process, which shows user and role/Responsibility access privileges, how they have been assigned and where they conflict with best practice.
To prepare for moving to Cloud ERP it’s also important to understand key process controls such as purchase matching options and chart of accounts configuration and to identify where these are inconsistent or not following best practice guidelines. Our Business Process Controls solution highlights these things, so we can ensure you are aware of them and can prepare a strategy to negate risk.
The last key area to be aware of before moving to Cloud is the Business Process Exceptions that may still exist in Cloud, such as users creating suppliers and invoices to the same supplier, or multiple expense claims. Our Business Process Exceptions analysis highlights these areas and allows us to propose effective solutions.
