Ways To Keep Your OPC Data Safe

As scams become more sophisticated, it is critical that you and your company understand how to keep your data secure. Oracle Primavera Cloud (OPC) provides powerful security measures to its users and administrators, but they cannot prevent every scheme, particularly targeted user scams and phishing attacks.

Below are some ways to keep your data safe while using Oracle Primavera Cloud.


Administrator Responsibilities


Administrator refers to individuals responsible for managing a company’s data and accessing it. This includes a range of IT professionals such as those defining roles in the Primavera Cloud application and those managing company servers.

  • Set up a Single Sign-On system (SSO) that enables you to use one set of credentials (username and password) for multiple applications, reducing the number of passwords you need to remember.
  • Set up multi-factor login/authentication, which will ask you to verify your identity with an additional step, such as a code received on your mobile phone.
  • Assign users specific license access and set up custom permission sets per user based on their needs.
  • Educate and empower users on how to avoid contributing to security breaches by following company policies and Oracle security protocols.


End User Responsibilities


End User refers to individuals who utilize the platform to carry out their work responsibilities. This encompasses professionals such as project managers, general contractors, subcontractors, and any other individual who accesses Primavera Cloud from their office or job site to complete their tasks.

  • Create strong, random passwords that you have not used before.
  • Recognize phishing attempts, which occur when someone tries to trick you into giving away sensitive information by disguising a message or email to look like a legitimate request. Always verify the authenticity of any emails or websites before entering sensitive data.
