SANS recognizes the need for comprehensive Oracle security training to help organizations protect their most critical information resources. In this course, the student is lead through the process of auditing and securing Oracle by defining the risks to data, using auditing techniques for detecting unauthorized access attempts, using Oracle access controls and user management functions, developing reliable backup and restore processes and techniques to secure the Oracle database, as well as applications.
Throughout the course the student will be exposed to the database as seen through the eyes of an attacker, including public and unreleased techniques that are used to compromise the integrity of the database or escalate a user's privileges. In this fashion, the student gains a better understanding of how an attacker sees a database as a target, and how we can configure the database to be resistant to known and unknown attacks.
This course has been updated for versions of Oracle up to and including 11g on Unix and Windows operating systems.
