IOUG/Oracle Software Security Assurance Team joint survery

I promoted the IOUG/Oracle security survey a few weeks back in a post titled "An Oracle Security Survey by The IOUG and Oracle" and today i received an email from John at the IOUG to let me know that the survey ends on July 31st.

I would ask everyone who has any level of interest in securing their Oracle database to take a few minutes to fill in the survey. It is important that everyone has their say. This is a very good way to get Oracle to make any changes in regards to areas such as CPU's or to tell Oracle that you are happy with the changes made over the last few years in regards to security. It is important that we get a good mix of views, i.e. don't assume that this is a survey to make complaints, its not, its a survery to capture views of as many Oracle customers as possible about securing the database.

The survey closes on 31st July so please take a few minutes to fill it in. The survery can be found at and then choose the OSSA Security Survey II survey. The site is not onerous, you simply choose a username and password and then proceed.
