Hands-on-Lab: Keeping your Data Safe – Security for Cloud Databases

While the cloud vendor secures the infrastructure, and keeps the platform patched, you are still responsible for enforcing checks and balances, and securing your users and your data. Oracle Data Safe is a new cloud service that helps secure your databases in the Oracle Cloud. In this lab, you’ll get hands-on experience using Data Safe to assess configuration and user risks, and monitor user activity, all with just a few clicks. You will also classify your sensitive data, and mask sensitive data for test and development, all without any special security training or expertise. If you have an Oracle Database in the cloud, this hands-on lab may be the most important session you attend at Collaborate!

  • Learning Objective 1: Learn how to use Oracle Data Safe
  • Learning Objective 2: Identify and minimize sensitive data in the Oracle Cloud
  • Learning Objective 3: Reduce risk and identify out-of-policy behavior
