Security Inside

Security Inside - Oracle database vault secures the inside of the enterprise.

by David A. Kelly

"Creating a data security strategy that fits your business is more than simply ensuring that basic access controls are defined or proper firewalls are in place. Having a comprehensive security plan means going beyond traditional security approaches to find flexible solutions that can help reduce internal and external risks, improve accountability, and enable organizations to do business more efficiently."

The Oracle magazine is now available electronically so I went for a look and found the above security article. The September / October issue is titled "Security Inside". There is also a good article on secure search titled:

"Secure Search Returns Best Results" - by Ron Hardman

"If your company is like most, data—some meant to be shared and some not—is stored in multiple locations. Those locations may include

File servers
E-mail messages and attachments
ERP modules
An intranet
Configuration management repositories
Multiple databases
Applications with existing search interfaces
Document archives
Desktop/laptop computers "

Nice article.
