UKOUG Conference is only 4 weeks away



Well the annual UKOUG conference in Birmingham is only around 4 weeks away from now. As usual the UKOUG guys have organised a bigger and better conference than ever. I have three slots myself. I am doing my Oracle Security basics presentation that talks about the key security issues that must be solved first in an Oracle database before anyone can start to dig into more detail. This is based on years of real experience auditing and securing real Oracle databases. My second session is my Oracle security round table session that should be good this year as we have Duncan Harris from Oracle, Slavik Markovich from Sentrigo and Paul Wright from Oracle forensics fame and currently at Markit. This should be a good session as previous years have attracted quite a crowd and also good discussions.

My final session is on the last day and is my two hour Oracle Security masterclass. This is an in-depth look at Oracle security including some live demonstrations. it is a new presentation and I am going to focus on some of the key areas of assessing the security of an Oracle database as well as some real hands on demos of what to do. It should be fun.

The complete agenda and main site for the UKOUG 2008 in Birmingham is available for details of registration, keynotes, round tables, masterclasses and also the full conference agenda. As usual the agenda is a whos-who of Oracle and it is always worth attending and I always learn a lot.
