Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Tim Boles, and welcome to my course OCP 12c Using the New Security Features. I'm a manager of database services at Hitachi Consulting. I've been working for over 17 years with Oracle Database Technologies, and I often speak at the collaborate convention on different Oracle topics. It's not very often you can implement changes in a database that make it more secure, yet makes the administration easier. In this course, we're going to show you how to use the new security features of Oracle 12c to make your database more secure and at the same time make management and monitoring of the security much easier. Some of the major topics we're going to cover include implementation of the unified audit trail and audit policies, hiding data through redaction, new administrators for management of backups, data guard, and transparent data encryption, and finding the right privileges for users through privilege analysis. By the end of this course, you'll know the benefits and some of the limitations of the new security features of Oracle 12c. You'll understand how to move data redaction from the application level to the database. You will realize that the separation of duties and the principle of least privileges can be achieved through the use of the new administrative accounts in the privilege analysis feature. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the auditing features of Oracle database in the pre-12c versions. From here, you'll feel comfortable diving into other OCP 12c courses from Pluralsight, like OCP Upgrade Oracle Database 12c Management, OCP 12c Performing Backup and Recovery Using the New Features of RMAN. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn the new security features of Oracle with the OCP 12c Using New Security Features course at Pluralsight.
