But, the reason I wanted to mention Justinís post is because of what he said in his third point. Justin said:
"3. Security, once an also-ran in the list of DBA priorities, is becoming increasingly important. Evaluating your security priorities across the IT stack (not just in the database) is a good start."
This is an important observation and quite obviously something I have believed in for some years. It is heartening to see that security is now becoming much more important not just for DBA's but for all of those people involved in implementing and running their businesses on Oracle software.
