26th of October 2016

On Wednesday October 26th 2016 we housed our latest technical lunch.
In this short seminar we brought up one of the biggest concerns companies have nowadays, security, and how it affects the most prevalent databases Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL.

The following sessions were given:

Johan Vanden Bossche

Oracle database security

Learn about the Oracle Database 12c Security Solutions in this session. Oracle Database 12c Security Options are an essential part of the Oracle strategy to protect data and sensitive information in Oracle Databases along with third party databases.
This workshop covers topics related to a strategy aligned to the main pillars of data protection: preventive, detective and monitoring. This is achieved using the Database12c Security Options such as Advanced Security, Data Redaction, Database Vault, Audit Vault, Key Vault and Database Firewall.

MySQL database security

Secure your MySQL databases now with MySQL Enterprise Edition. The new version contains multiple new security features to help you minimize risk, protect all your data and facilitate regulatory compliance. MySQL makes it easy for you too – with Secure by Default functionality that ensures MySQL is already in a highly secure state on installation. Plus: the MySQL Enterprise Edition includes firewall, encryption, audit, authentication and other modules to protect all your databases while saving you time with usability and minimal admin.

PostgeSQL database security

We present a layered security model that addresses host access control, database access management, and data security. These recommendations are applicable to PostgreSQL (the community edition) and to EDB Postgres Advanced Server, the enterprise-class, feature-rich commercial distribution of PostgreSQL from EnterpriseDB. Advanced Server provides additional relevant security enhancements, such as edb_audit, SQL/Protect and Virtual Private Database (VPD) that are not available in the same form in PostgreSQL.
