Oracle security presentations

I am speaking a number of times in the coming months on the subjects of Oracle Security. These are: - (broken link) UKOUG Windows SIG - Blythe Valley Park - September 25th

My presentation is called "Securing Oracle on Windows" - The description is:

"Most larger databases are in general hosted on Unix systems and so most of the material around securing Oracle tends to focus on Unix systems. This presentation hopes to rectify this imbalance somewhat. Pete has real world experience in performing security audits on key Oracle systems that run on Windows and in this paper will look at some of the major differences and also highlight some of his own experience. Securing Oracle is often very time consuming and complex and doing so on Windows is often harder often due to the industry preference for Unix documentation" - (broken link) UKOUG DBMS SIG - Chesford Grange in the midlands - November 7th

My presentation is called "Oracle Security on 11g" - This talk doesnt have a description yet but will be about the new Oracle security features in 11gR1 and whats changed. This talk will look at what the security issues are in Oracle, how the issues have changed for the betterin 11gR1 and will aso look at some of the new features and functions available.

I also have 4 slots at the UKOUG main conference in Birmingham this year, these are summarised as follows: - (broken link) UKOUG Conference Birmingham - Oracle Security Masterclass - 6th December 2007 - 13:10 - (broken link) UKOUG Conference Birmingham - Oracle Security Tools - 4th December 2007 - 13:30 - (broken link) UKOUG Conference Birmingham - Oracle Security Round Table - 4th December 2007 16:50 - (broken link) UKOUG Conference Birmingham - Oracle Forensics - 5th December 2007 16:50
