Oracle Security Training Course in York 2018

York City Walls

Pete Finnigan is going to teach four exciting days of training covering many aspects of Oracle Security spread over three different Oracle Security training classes and spread over 4 days. The training event will consist of our two day class - How to Perform a Security Audit of an Oracle Database and two one day classes - Secure Coding in PL/SQL and Oracle Incident Response and Forensics (The first time this class will be taught in York). The first and second classes are very popular for private classes and along with the Forensics class we want to now offer these as a public event in Pete Finnigan's home city of York, England.

(2 Days) How to perform a Security Audit of an Oracle Database

During the How to perform an audit class we start with looking at why data can become insecure and how this is affected by the way the database works itself, how we as customers of Oracle make data insecure in our designs, methods and processes used and then how hackers can attack and steal data. We go on to plan a security audit and then walk through a complete sample security audit and then place the results into the context of securing all of the data held and processed by the customer

“It really was an excellent course that crammed a lot into two days, delivering a good understanding of the fundamental security risks and flaws around the data in an Oracle database and providing the knowledge and skills required to carry out a database security audit from first principals”

-- M.C, Information security and assurance provider, UK

The class is interspersed with lots of real life experience in the area of Oracle security by one of the few people who performs detailed security audits of Oracle databases worldwide. Lots of anecdotes, wisdom and real life!

(1 Day) Secure Coding in PL/SQL

We start of by looking at the overall problem space of secure coding. A good secure PL/SQL application is not just about syntax and avoiding SQL Injection but is also about good design and good practices around separation and privileges. The main thrust of the class is to walk through every type of code attack that is possible in PL/SQL and then to focus on the solutions that you can use for good solid secure coding. We then explore best practice around encryption and also protecting IPR in your code and context base coding. The day concludes with a look at code analysis and looking for vulnerabilities in your own PL/SQL.

(1 Day) Oracle Incident Response and Forensics

This is an exciting class based on the same content as my book written a few months ago and published by Apress. The class starts with the basics around what is an incident, what is a breach and then quickly moves to discuss incident response, planning and creating a policy, plan, a team and tools that can be used. We then look at what artefacts can be gathered from an Oracle database and from the server and from peripheral other devices. We then look at a sample incident and do live analysis and gather all of the data needed to establish if an attack is real, what the time time is and what live data we need to gather. We then look at performing forensic analysis to answer the basic questions; was there an attack? when did it start and when did it end? how did they get in? who did they connect as? What data did they see or steal? and what could they have done with more skills?

You can choose to attend all three classes over four days or any of the classes, it is up to you to choose.
