“The course was very informative on the security and features of Oracle. I was able to walk away with a good understanding of what to look at and what not to.”
-Tim Bouris, Audit Supervisor, HJ Heinz Co
The Oracle Database Management System remains the world’s most popular DBMS. In this comprehensive four-day seminar you will learn Oracle's database facilities and terminology along with the activities you need to know to provide security and controls over Oracle software. You will uncover the risks Oracle introduces and the exposures it reduces. You will explore Oracle's approach to the client/server and Web processing environments and discover the impact Oracle has on your enterprise's organization, security profiles, and information technology standards.
Using a case study, you will start by planning an audit or review and by determining what technical evidence you will need. You will then analyze real-world examples of Data Dictionary view reports, parameter specifications, scripts, and trace data for evidence of security and integrity problems. You will learn the steps to take to prepare for an interview with the Database Administrator (DBA), and to present your report with technical findings and recommendations. In addition, class exercises throughout the session will reinforce what you learn, and you will receive an audit and security program and checklist you can put to use immediately.
Prerequisite: Because of Oracle's dependence on operating system controls, you should be knowledgeable in the controls provided by your Windows-, Unix- or z/OS-type system.
