I am speaking at the Northern Server Technology day tomorrow 24th April

I will be at the Northern Server Technology Day in Leeds tomorrow 24th April speaking about Oracle security. My paper is titled "Hacking and securing Oracle" and is quite a detailed talk for one hour about Oracle security and covering, what is the issue? - why is your data at risk, some evidence, where you can find out more info, where you can get free tools and more; I then go over quite a number of exploits in 9iR2 and 10gR2 and show how Oracle can be hacked in a number of different ways. I finish off with a discussion on how to use some of the tools and also some details on how you may start to go about securing your Oracle database.

Come along and say hello if you are in the area!
