Focus on Database Security @ Oracle OpenWorld, 2016

This year's Oracle OpenWorld is chock-full of database security sessions and this Focus on Oracle Database Security document provides a full list for the week. For a quick reference, I've outlined some key must-see sessions.


Defense-in-Depth Database Security for On-Premises and Cloud Databases [CON6143]

Vipin Samar, SVP of Database Security, Oracle

The last 24 months have seen an unprecedented scale of data breaches across all sectors. Databases are frequently targeted by organized criminals, nation-states, and even insiders because they hold the most sensitive assets. Join this session to hear the senior vice president of Oracle Database Security development discuss a defense-in-depth strategy to mitigate different threat vectors against attacks on both on-premises and cloud databases. Learn how to evaluate your security posture, reduce attack surface, prevent attacks, and monitor user activities to keep your data safe using the latest innovations in Oracle Database Security. He also shares how to maintain full control and visibility of cloud databases.

Customer Panel: The Science and Art of Deploying Database Security [CON6578]

Sarah Brydon, Engineer (IT), Paypal

Keith Wilcox, VP, Database, Epsilon Data Management LLC

Leonid Stavnitser, Senior Director, Managed Security Services, Oracle

Troy Kitch, Director of Security Software Product Marketing, Oracle 

Managing risk in the face of data breaches and regulatory compliance is a consistent challenge. One of the best ways to gain insight into database security is to hear firsthand from current customers: how they prioritize what to protect, and then how they deploy database security to mitigate these threats. Come join this session to hear Oracle top-tier customers discuss their deployments, best practices, and the science and art of defending their databases.

Continuing Innovations in Oracle Database Encryption Jump Starts Your Security [CON6368]

Saikat Saha, Senior Principal Product Manager, Database Security, Oracle

Encrypting sensitive data has become a must in light of recent megabreaches and ever-expanding compliance regulations. Join this session to learn about new innovations in Oracle Advanced Security's transparent data encryption capabilities, including the new online and offline encryption capabilities. See a demo and learn about operational considerations, application transparency, performance throughput, and key management. The session also includes a real-world perspective on using Oracle Database encryption technologies.

Using Oracle Key Vault to Simply Key Management [CON6369]

Saikat Saha, Senior Principal Product Manager, Database Security, Oracle

Steven Zydek, Oracle DBA, Kohl's Corporation

The security of your encrypted data depends upon the security and control you have over the encryption keys. Centralized protection and management of encryption keys has become an important consideration for organizations. This session discusses how Oracle Key Vault accelerates deployment of encryption through centralized management. Optimized for Oracle Databases, Oracle Key Vault is a security-hardened software appliance with the ability to centrally store, share, and manage master encryption keys, Oracle Wallets, and Java KeyStores. Learn about the latest innovations and deployment best practices in the new Oracle Key Vault 12.2, and watch demonstrations of this easy-to-provision key management solution.
Thursday, Sep 22, 9:30 a.m. - 10:15 a.m. | Park Central—Franciscan I

Reducing the Risk from Malicious Users with Oracle Database Vault [CON6552]

Alan Williams, Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle

Shekhar Trivedi, DBA, Verizon wireless

In this session learn best practices for using Oracle Database Vault to protect your sensitive data from access by unauthorized users. Highly privileged database accounts can be used by malicious users to access sensitive data they are not authorized to see. See how to reduce risk and liability and meet regulatory requirements to prevent unauthorized data access. The new simulation mode allows you to quickly and safely analyze the security controls you need to protect sensitive data and prevent unauthorized changes to the database. Simulation mode eliminates the risk of impacting mission-critical applications. Learn how privilege analysis can help you implement least privilege best practices.
Wednesday, Sep 21, 4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. | Moscone South—301

Inside the Head of a Database Hacker [CON6142]

Mark Fallon, Architect / Security Lead, Oracle

With unprotected assets hiding in plain sight in databases, no wonder hackers seek to steal intellectual property, personally identifiable information, and payment cards from databases. Exploiting common vulnerabilities-such as unpatched systems, overprivileged accounts, insecure database configurations, and stolen passwords-and unencrypted data is a good place to start. However, knowing the mind of a hacker can better help you strategize a blueprint for protecting your database. In this session, a world-renowned database white hat hacker takes you step by step into the mind of a cybercriminal adept at exploiting vulnerabilities to access sensitive data stored in databases.
Wednesday, Sep 21, 3:00 p.m. | Moscone South—104


Accelerate Compliance with EU General Data Protection Regulation [CON6587]

Dinesh Rajasekharan, Product Manager, Oracle

The European Union (EU) recently announced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to address increasing security threats. Noncompliance fines can be up to 4 percent of global annual revenue. Come to this session to learn about how this regulation applies to both EU and non-EU organizations that have data about EU residents. Learn about the key data protection controls imposed by GDPR, and how they apply to the database, the source of sensitive data. Understand GDPR’s key objectives and actors, and learn how Oracle Database Security technologies can help implement data protection guidelines recommended by GDPR.
Thursday, Sep 22, 9:30 a.m. | Marriott Marquis—Salon 10/11 

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall: New Features, Hybrid Cloud Deployment [CON6579]

Wilson Verardi, CSRA

George Csaba, Director, Product Management, Database Security , Oracle

Attend this session to learn about the new features available with Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall 12.2. Find out how they protect your Oracle and non-Oracle databases against insider threats and help achieve regulatory compliance. Learn how Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall consolidates audit data for not only on-premises, but also in hybrid cloud environments where some databases are on-premises and others are in the Oracle Public Cloud. Discover how Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall ensures consistent security and audit policies across all database instances while decreasing implementation time and lowering TCO.
Thursday, Sep 22, 10:45 a.m. | Moscone South—301

Quickly Mask Test/Dev Environments: Securing Production Data Alone Is Insufficient [CON6583]

Dinesh Rajasekharan, Product Manager, Oracle

While many organizations implement protective and detective controls for their production databases, their test/dev databases are often left unprotected and become low hanging fruits for attackers. Test/dev databases are typically the first databases to be moved to the cloud, and it is really critical to remove sensitive data prior to the move. Attend this session to find out how Oracle Data Masking and Subsetting Pack can help de-identify sensitive data from test/dev systems. This helps take such databases out of scope from audit and compliance and reduces the cost of compliance. Learn how to mask data dynamically in real time using Data Redaction. Learn about latest product updates, best practices, and a customer case study.
