Protecting information assets is challenging for every enterprise, regardless of size and industry—and it has become an even more complex task for enterprises adopting distributed computing environments.
Security, Audit and Control Features Oracle Database, 3rd Edition, provides a new perspective of security and controls over Oracle. This updated edition includes a background and review of security controls and addresses the risks associated with protecting information in a distributed computing environment of various platforms, versions, interfaces and tools.
The goal of this popular book is to guide the assessor through a comprehensive evaluation of security for an Oracle database based on business objectives and risks. It examines several different frameworks that can be used to assess security risks, and covers technical topics, including an overview of Oracle Database’s architecture, operating system controls, auditing and logging, network security, and new features in Oracle 11g (differences from previous versions of Oracle Database are noted, as well as differences that may exist based on the host operating system of the database).
Topics in the book include:
• New security features in Oracle 10g and 11g
• Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) architectures
• Access controls, application controls, and IT general controls
