2 Day Oracle Security Seminar in York, England

We are holding a public training event in my home city of York on July 13th and July 14th 2009. The two day seminar is aimed at getting anyone who needs to perform a security audit of an Oracle database up to speed with the whole process (cradle to grave - planning to completion). The class is valuable to many different kinds of people, from developers, security staff, DBA's, managers... as the core lessons are taught; why data is insecure, how to plan for an audit; how to conduct an audit; how to appraise the data collected and what to do next.

The class works even if you are not going to perform the audit yourself but are going to hire someone; securing complex software such as Oracle's database is often a complex task in-itself and understanding the process is very important.

The class is structured around a "mock" database security audit but the end goal is to indentify the data, who uses it (authorised or not) and how that data "flows" throughout the database. So whilst the focus is on a security audit; the real story; is how to secure the data in your Oracle databases.

This is a unique oppertunity to be taught by Pete Finnigan about how to secure an Oracle database.

The details of the class are on a new page - Oracle Security training York - including location, course registration and price.

I am really excited to be teaching this class in my home Roman and Viking city of York and I am planning to show delegates around the city whilst they are here [ if they want to of course!]. The places are very limited so please hurry to confirm your place on this seminar.
