Oracle security conferences, illness and ....

It's been a few days since my last blog entry and not many over the last few weeks...:-) Business has been taking off spectacularly so I have been very very busy; burning the candels at both ends as they say. This all had to slow down last week due to a very bad cold, badly infected ear and throat and a very bad unshiftable cough. Now I have been on pain killers and anti-biotics and more potions and lotions for 4 days. This has slowed me down to just client work during normal hours and no internal work / projects in the mornings or evenings..:-)...

A few speaking update; I am speaking at the UKOUG beginners day at the end of this month (28th Feb) in London, which I am looking forward to. I am also going to be speaking at the OUG Ireland Oracle User Group at Croke Park on 11th March and also at the OUG Scotland event on April 30th in Edinburgh and finally (for now) I am going to be speaking in Oslo on May 23rd at the Mnemonic security conference, called RISK 2008.

The interest in our how to audit an Oracle database training course has been superb for on-site clients and I have also been working with a number of companies in Europe and the states and this course and can announces that it will also be available as a public even on a number of occasions; more details to follow soon.

I have also been busy getting my companies services, partners, products and more added to the site. There are a couple of things still to complete; mainly some product descriptions and also i need to add the rest of our consultancy services. They can all be accessed via the services menu on every page.
