80 Plus Sessions Covering Security at Oracle Open World This Year!!
By Roxana Bradescu on Sep 18, 2008
At last count, we had 82 sessions covering security at this year’s Oracle Open World starting on Sunday September 21. This is a record but not surprising when you consider that Oracle offers the virtual machine, the operating system, the database, the middleware, and the applications needed to run pretty much any kind of enterprise, from grocery store chains to entire governments. And everything in that stack needs to be secured - really drives home defense-in-depth. Database Security is really the lynchpin of that defense-in-depth since most organizations store all their mission critical data in their databases. So whether you are a DBA, an HR Manager, an IT Apps Developer, or a Compliance Officer, I encourage you to go to some database security sessions and stop by the Database Security demo grounds in Moscone South.
If you want to catch up with me personally (to perhaps complain about my blogging lapses ;-) I will be on the panel at the “IOUG Security Roundtable” Sunday September 21 at 1pm (Moscone West Rm 2003) and moderating the “Applications Data Privacy: An Expert Panel Discussion” session Wednesday September 24, 11.30am (Moscone West, Rm 2001). I am very excited to be moderating this session - we have an amazing panel and we’re going to be discussing data masking and de-identification.
Oh and if you want to take a break from security, there’s always Michael Phelps!
