If you use Oracle database software and you value the data held in the databases you have deployed then this is a site that you need to visit and then digest the Oracle Security information provided. Identity theft and personal data theft is a world wide problem in current times. This sort of data in general resides in a database. Recent surveys have also found that the number of internal breaches of security in those companies and organisations polled has increased so that internal breaches now exceed external breaches. This in simple terms means that your Oracle database and the data it holds must be secured at the Oracle database level; firewalls and traditional network security are no longer enough. Oracle database security is where we can help you.
