How to Perform a Security Audit of an Oracle Database Training in Athens, Greece

I will be teaching my two days class How to Perform a Security Audit of an Oracle Database in Athens, Greece on May 16th and 17th 2017 organised by Oracle University.

This is a great class that helps you understand why the data in your Oracle database can become insecure and why design decisions that you make can make this worse. We discuss the background first and set the scene of where Oracle security fits, what does it mean for you, what is hacking, how can someone compromise your database and what tools and options are available to you.

We then layout the steps needed to perform a security audit, what tools do we need, what systems / databases should we audit and where does the audit "fit" into the whole realm of securing all of the data held in your Oracle databases. The bulk of the class is a walk-through of a complete example security audit. I perform many examples, use and demonstrate many free tools and explain as we go what to do if we find an issue. The class completes with a look at what to do next; how to review all databases in your organisation, how to create a database security policy and how you may go about locking down all databases.

This is a great class held over 2 days in Athens, Greece and you can register your place by following the link in our Public Training dates page. Sorry, GreyMatter breaks Oracle provided links so I cannot post it directly here in the blog..:-(
