In my initial entry, I mentioned that I am involved with the Independent Oracle User Group and the Special Interest Groups. The Enterprise Best Practices SIG is sponsoring a very exciting webinar next week that any Oracle technologist should be participating in. Tanya Baccam is an instructor with the SANS Institute and Roxana Bardescu is a Senior Principal Product Director in the Database Security Marketing Group at Oracle. They are co-presenting a webinar on Audit Vault, Oracle’s new tool for capturing audit information. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, March 11 at 2:00 pm Central Time. Here is the abstract:
Using the native auditing capabilities provided by the Oracle Database and Oracle Audit Vault, organizations can easily monitor their databases for suspicious activities and simplify compliance reporting without costly investments in third-party solutions. In this session, you will learn best practices for effectively auditing your Oracle databases as well as how Oracle Audit Vault can proactively collect and analyze that data in real-time to generate alerts and reports that satisfy internal security policies and regulatory compliance.
I have heard both Roxana and Tanya present before and they are very knowledgeable. This should be a very informative webinar. You can register by following this link.
If you want more on security, you can really get an in depth view of database security at Collaborate 09. Tanya will be presenting a University Seminar on Sunday that is an abbreviate version of the SANS Institute’s week long Securing Oracle Database training. This will give you enough information to scare the heck out of your manager!
Check out the webinar… nothing like free training in this day! Happy auditing!
