Focus on Database Security at Oracle OpenWorld, 2014

Data security threats and regulatory compliance are the new "death" and "taxes" that we can all be certain of. Security is a hot topic across all organizations, whether you have 100 or 100,000 employees. Organizations are scrambling to mitigate threats and comply with regulatory requirements. Oracle OpenWorld is the place for customers to hear about the latest advances in data security, meet with security experts, and learn the next steps to help secure the sensitive data they hold.

With Oracle OpenWorld, 2014 about 2 months away, we've compiled the database security sessions, hands on labs, and more, that are critical for database administrators, security experts and executives to attend. As an example of just some of the talks this year:

Oracle Database 12c: Defense-in-Depth Security [CON8194]

Attend this session to quickly get up to speed on the powerful preventive and detective controls available in Oracle Database 12c. It provides an overview of security capabilities in Oracle Database 12c and is ideally suited for those who are new to security or want to get quickly get up to speed on protecting the data stored in their mission-critical databases. The presentation drills down particularly into the new Oracle Database 12c unified and conditional auditing facility. Learn how to create audit policies with conditional clauses, enabling highly selective and effective auditing. See a demonstration of a conditional audit policy based on a connection from a database link and a connection using proxy authentication.

Introducing Oracle Key Vault: Centralized Keys, Wallets, and Java Keystores [CON8189]

Attend this technical session to learn how the new Oracle Key Vault helps organizations accelerate encryption initiatives by addressing proliferating wallets, managing them centrally. See demonstrations of how to set up, configure, and administer Oracle Key Vault for centralized key management for OSs, databases, and middleware. Get best practices for using Oracle Key Vault, a security-hardened software appliance, with existing key storage files such as Oracle wallets and Java Keystores. Learn about optimizations for Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Database 12c, where Oracle Key Vault directly connects to Oracle Advanced Security transparent data encryption (TDE).

Oracle Database Security Strategy and Best Practices: Customer Case Study Panel [CON8192]

Oracle Database security solutions are transparent and easy to deploy and offer comprehensive data protection in a rapidly evolving threat landscape. In this session, you will hear from Oracle customers that have successfully deployed transparent data encryption, data masking, database firewalls, and database auditing and monitoring to protect their data and address regulatory compliance requirements. You will hear why they did it, how they did it, and the lessons learned. This is a highly interactive session—you will have an opportunity to pose questions to the panel and get real-world tips and best practices from your peers.

Introducing Oracle Key Vault for Centralized Key Management

Oracle Customers Secure Critical Encryption Keys with Oracle Key Vault

Centrally Manage Oracle Database Encryption Master Keys, Oracle Wallets, Java KeyStores and Other Credential Files

Encryption is widely recognized as the gold standard for protecting data privacy, but encryption is only as strong as its key management. Critical credential files such as Oracle Wallets, Java KeyStores, SSH key files and SSL certificate files are often widely distributed across servers and server clusters with error-prone synchronization and backup mechanisms.

To address the need for robust key management, Oracle today introduced Oracle Key Vault, a software appliance designed to securely manage encryption keys and credential files in the enterprise data center.

Read the press release and register for the webcast to learn how Oracle Key Vault:
  • Centralizes Keys in a modern, secure, and robust key management platform
  • Secures, shares, and manages keys and secrets for the enterprise
  • Manages key lifecycle stages including creation, rotation, and expiration
