Controlling access to data subsets within an application table can be difficult and inefficient especially when faced with specific data ownership, consolidation and multi-tenancy requirements. However, this can be elegantly addressed using label based access control (LBAC). In this webcast you will learn how LBAC using Oracle Label Security and Oracle Database 11g can easily enforce row-level access based on user security clearance. In addition, Oracle security experts will discuss real world case studies demonstrating how customers, in industries ranging from retail to government, are relying on Oracle Label Security for virtual information partitioning and secure consolidation of information.

This Thursday at 9am, the ISACA Webcast Series presents a joint Forrester and Oracle presentation on how to formulate a database security strategy.
With the growing internal and external attacks on corporate and government applications and stronger regulatory compliance enforcement, investing in data security is a top priority for organizations. Yet significant gaps still exist at the very core — the databases that house the corporate crown jewels. A recent study by Forrester Consulting* found that most organizations don’t have a comprehensive enterprise database security strategy resulting in ad-hoc deployment of point solutions focused on detection rather than prevention. In this webcast, guest speaker Forrester Research, Inc. Principal Analyst Noel Yuhanna will discuss the findings of this study and the importance of an integrated and comprehensive database security platform that can provide better security at lower cost. You will also hear from Roxana Bradescu, Director of Database Security Product Management at Oracle, about the recent innovations in Oracle’s database security platform, and learn how you can make the most of your security investments.
Register now for ISACA Webcast this Thursday, February 9 at 9am PT/12pm ET.
*Formulate A Database Security Strategy To Ensure Investments Will Actually Prevent Data Breaches And Satisfy Regulatory Requirements, a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Oracle, January 2012.
