Three Essential Database Security Sessions

Database security is an important priority for organizations of all sizes, across all industries worldwide, as increasingly sophisticated attacks, new compliance regulations, insider fraud, and data breaches threaten to disrupt businesses. That’s why Oracle OpenWorld 2011 features even more sessions focusing on database security than ever before. Here are three sessions you can’t afford to miss:

  • Oracle’s Maximum Security Architecture (Session 13420, Tuesday, October 4, 1:15 p.m., 103 Moscone South) Privacy, compliance, and insider and external threats are just a few of the challenges confronting organizations of all sizes worldwide. In this session, learn about Oracle’s Maximum Security Architecture, a defense-in-depth security approach that provides flexibility, transparency, and support for heterogeneous database environments including Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, and Sybase. You also have an opportunity to see demos of solutions available to help you safeguard your organization today, and hear firsthand from customers using these solutions. 
  • Oracle Database Firewall: What’s New and Best Practices (Session 13442, Wednesday, October 5, 10:15 a.m., 301 Moscone South) Catch up on the latest about Oracle Database Firewall, including best practices for deployment, management, and high availability.
