security, privacy and compliance requirements of your organization. You'll get the chance to interact with expert Oracle
University instructors through a combination of instruction and hands-on exercises that reinforce new concepts.

Learn To:
Understand Oracle security solutions and how they can help address your security requirements.
Configure strong authentication for database users using PKI and Kerberos.
Control data access using virtual private database and Oracle Label Security.
Analyze application privileges and reduce the attack surface using Oracle Database Vault Privilege Analysis.
Reduce risk of data exposure using Oracle Advanced Security Data Redaction, Transparent Data Encryption and Oracle
Data Masking and Subsetting.
Audit activity inside the database using policy and condition based unified auditing.
Configure network encryption to protect information in transit.
Audit activity inside the database using policy and condition based unified auditing.
Protect against application bypass using Oracle Database Vault Realms.

Benefits to You
The current regulatory environment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, HIPAA, the UK Data Protection Act, and others requires
better security at the database level. By investing in this course, you'll learn how to secure access to your databases and
use database features that enhance data access and confidentiality. This course provides suggested Oracle solutions
for common problems.

Deep Dive into Security Features
Expert Oracle University instructors discuss the following security features of the database: authentication, data access
control including user authorizations using privileges and roles, Privilege Analysis, Virtual Private Database, Oracle
Label Security as well as data confidentiality. This includes Data Redaction, Oracle Data Masking and Subsetting,
Transparent Sensitive Data Protection and encryption at the column, tablespace and file levels using Transparent Data

Throughout this course, you'll also get a chance to discuss auditing using different features, including unified auditing
and fine-grained auditing. You'll deep dive into some of the Oracle Network security topics, like securing the listener and
restricting connections by IP address.

Gain Hands-On Experience
Hands-on practices and available demonstrations help you learn how to use most of the features of Oracle Database
12c to secure your data center. Develop an understanding of how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control and
