NYOUG 2019 Summer Meeting: Oracle Security for DBAs and Developers

Oracle Security for DBAs and Developers

Everyone should know that the Oracle database contains more built-in security functionality than do all of the other major commercial database products combined. They should also know that most of its security features are disabled by default. Knowledge of security tools that require additional licensing such as Database Vault, Database Firewall, Transparent Data Encryption, and Audit Vault are important but equally important are the many capabilities included in the default license that can harden a database against attack. Oracle ACE Director Alumnus Daniel Morgan will present with demos live in SQL*Plus how substantially improve your database’s security using built-in features that require no additional licensing and show how you can stop your Oracle database from being used as a source of both internal and external attacks.
