Oracle Database Security Audit Training Course [ 2 Days ]

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

“Instructors knowledge and experience beyond question! Excellent course.”

-- S.K, Large Power Supplier, UK

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 includes a complete simulated audit by running through step-by-step all of the steps and components of an Oracle database audit via the medium of slides but importantly using a sample Oracle database and fully functioning content management application as a basis for the audit. Each area of the Oracle security audit is demonstrated and explained in detail.

“The course was to the point, dealt with security auditing specifically. Extremely knowledgeable and pragmatic.”
