Slides from OUGN Norway and RISK 2008 Norway available

I was over in Norway this week and the Oracle User Group Norway (OUGN) asked me to speak at an evening user group meeting of theirs. This was a eally friendly group and it was a pleasure to speak there. The slides for the two talks I gave are on my Oracle Security white papers page. The individual papers are "Oracle Security Basics" - which out of interest is not intended to mean a basic presentation but is about getting the building blocks right in terms of securing an Oracle database. The second paper is "Oracle Security Tools".

Then I was asked to speak at the RISK 2008 Conference organised by Mnemonic one of the key security consultancies in Norway. It was a good conference (mostly in Norwegian) but I enjoyed Marcus Ranum's talk which was interesting from the point of view that we are on the same wave length, he was saying some of the same things I say about security and particularly data security. It was nice to have a chat with him after lunch also.
