Do you have a Database Security Plan?
By Roxana Bradescu on Dec 16, 2009
Most organizations have a database disaster recovery plan, a database maintenance plan, and other plans related to operating their database. But according the 2009 IOUG Data Security Report, more than half lack a database security plan!
A secure database is a matter of both process and technology. A piecemeal approach to protecting your databases is not only costly and inefficient, but also results in gaps that leave your organization vulnerable to security and regulatory issues.
In one of the most highly attended sessions at Oracle Open World this year, Noel Yuhanna, principal analyst at Forrester Research, discussed how to design a cost-efficient, comprehensive database security plan that addresses the critical areas of database security. He talked about how to go all the way from a database security strategy to a plan, and even provided the templates you need to get started.
But since not everyone could make it Oracle Open World, we repeated this session online so you can watch" it right now. You can also read Forrester's "Your Enterprise Database Security Strategy for 2010" report in our Oracle Database Security Resource Kit which has the resources you need to help you start protecting your data immediately.
