COUG June 19th Event featuring Ray Smith from CGI

Presentation: Oracle Database 12c Security Auditing

Often overlooked as one of the less interesting subjects for databases, auditing is fast becoming a feature that the Oracle DBA needs to understand.
Auditing has suffered bad press in previous years – primarily with the fear that switching it on may have a negative performance effect, or it doesn’t have a enough capabilities.

  • This particular DBA’s gripe is the lack of clear information on what is actually possible, and the impact of setting it up. 10g, 11g and now 12c have all introduced new features.
  • The goal of this presentation is to offer the audience an opportunity to gain an understanding of what is available, how it can be configured, and the impact of setting it up.

Speaker: Ray Smith, CGI
