Oracle Database Security Audit Training Cource

This course teaches the delegates how to confidently perform a security audit on an Oracle database.

Published: 28.01.2014 9:00 | Category: Training

The course has been designed by Pete Finnigan and is up to date using all supported versions of Oracle from 9iR2 through Oracle 11g. The course gets the delegates up to speed on the reasons Oracle databases are invariably insecure. Everyone is brought up to the same level in terms of where to look, what to look for and why. The course shows how a security audit is planned, how to prepare yourself for it, your staff and your environments.

The course is aimed at the fundamentals of how to review a database and why and does not focus on simply running tools. It is important to understand why something is an issue, to understand how to check that its an issue and importantly understand the implications in respect to your own databases and applications before using pre-built or commercial tools.

The course is run on your own site and is over two days and includes the following topics:

Background to key database files, structures, configurations and files relative to security.
