Oracle Security done Right - Simple

In the middle of a bit of a roller coaster week, I attended the workshop from Frits Hoogland about "Oracle Security done Right".

There is of course a lot to be said (and written) about security and every situation will demand a tailored approach.

But Frits laid down a relatively "Simple" approach.
He shows how to cover both accountability and auditability.

A true "Trust but Verify" approacht. And Simple.

The approach merits a good look and during the workshop already there was some good discussion.

It will not be the be-all-end-all of security, but it is a good start.
A bit of criticism wont hurt. A discussion will probably make the approach better.

Just remember: keep it simple. Please.

And that is why I think his approach is worth some attention.

It's quite funny to see manager's faces when you say to them that this solution is a more secure approach and workable solution than their "high security, no one comes in" approach...

What is his approach?

Hello Robert, and welcome.

Colin, you will have to ask the Man Himself to explain his approach on the Internet. Or visit one of his presentations or workshops.
Nice to see you around, btw.

Such comments are or might cause serious damage to my client's site with respect to SEO which is why I am request you here by to remove it asap.

You now feel like a right Bully Mystique. Why dont you come clean with a real name and an email addy (I'm not clicking your link, just in case that is the actual spam).

I've removed the double comment from the SAP-drone, if that was the one you were after.

Or was it the vital soft tech one after all ?
How about I report this Vialtech for Spam - again ? (wont do much good, but I can try)

I'll get it out too, if you are able to post a proper, verifiable mail address, and if I can find you on linkedin.
