In July 2019, Capital One reported that a data breach had led to unauthorized access to data of over 100 million customers.
Capital One had employed Amazon as its cloud hosting provider and the hacker was identified as an ex-Amazon employee.
The contours of the data breach were similar to what had been suggested by Oracle, last year.
Additionally,it appears that the breach was due to a structural weakness that had been known for a while.
In the aftermath of this breach, we evaluate if Oracle’s architectural approach can emerge on top.
