Oracle VM Disaster Recovery Best Practices

Oracle VM is part of Oracle’s complete and integrated virtualization portfolio, which is designed for scale and enterprise-proven. See how Joe Hoot, supervising programmer analyst for the State University of New York (SUNY), and his IT team implemented disaster recovery with Oracle VM to deliver IT services for 450,000 students, library systems for 64 campuses, and online courses for 256,000 students.

Database Activity Monitoring: Detection, Prevention, and Audit

Industry data indicates only 25 percent of organizations are monitoring for unauthorized database changes on most of their databases. Similarly, 70 percent of organizations have database auditing enabled, but the majority conducts a database audit less than once a year. This Webcast focuses on the importance of the different facets of monitoring—detection, prevention, and audit—and covers a new unified platform to help organizations conduct enterprisewide auditing and database protection.

Security Briefing Series—The Easy Target: Your Unsecured Databases

According to leading industry reports, 98 percent of breached data originates from unsecured database servers, nearly half of which are compromised in less than a minute. Almost all victims are not aware of a breach until a third party notifies them, and nearly all breaches could have been avoided through the use of basic controls. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle for this security briefing series that focuses on database security and the detective, preventive, and administrative controls that can be put in place to mitigate risks.
