Presentation Title: Intelligently Securing a Large, Globally Distributed, Database Estate
Speaker: Mr Paul Wright
Co-presenter: Philip Weeden - IDN
Presentation abstract: Securing a global database estate effectively, so that it can pass audit and satisfy risk requirements, has demanded a high degree of prioritization. Large configuration guides had to be shortened down to Top Tens which could then be automatically deployed and measured. Now Cloud consolidation raises new risks for DBA Managers, so lessons from after the beta will be explored in terms of future security issues. Competitive pressures on performance will require security configurations that can adjust relative to varying threat levels automatically. This will be demonstrated and will enhance your security best practices beyond 12c.
