Oracle Security Back to basics slides available

I presented at the Back to basics event organised by the UKOUG in the Paddington area of London. The event was very well attended and was hosted by Lisa Dobson. Tom Kyte, myself, Jonathan Lewis and Julian Dyke all presented at the event. This was a great event aimed at bringing each presenters specialities back to basics. Of course I was speaking about security and I tried to home in on the core issues related to Oracle security. This was fun to do and quite an interesting challenge as it quickly becomes evident that its easy to go too deep and baffle people sometimes. It was really interesting to pull out some of the basic core issues and talk about them, its also interesting to realise that if a small number of basic issues are taken care of how much better the security of a particular database would be.

As usual I have provided a pdf of my slides, Oracle Security Basics and also a second pdf with 6 slides per page - Oracle Security Basics - 6 Slides.
