Course Description

This course is a one day seminar that gives the delegates an appreciation of what is involved in responding to a serious security incident in their Oracle database.The class starts the day with the basics; what is a threat, what is an incident, what are forensics. 
We go on to discuss how to gather artefacts from an Oracle database; we discuss and lay out a suitable incident response approach. 
The class then introduces a compromised application and Oracle database and we work through live incident response and data gathering against this sample system. 
This is followed by a detailed forensic analysis to investigate what happened and answer the who, what, where and how questions. 
The investigation is then confirmed by comparing with exactly what the hacker did do. The day ends with a look at what to do next to secure and audit your databases and to make them ready for any incident and response.
Course GoalsThe aim of the class is for students to get an appreciation of what to do if one of their Oracle databases is breached. The goal is to lay out all of the major areas of issue and also possible solutions. The students will cover:

  • How to formulate an incident response plan?
  • How to gather data and investigate a breached database?
  • How to focus the analysis to understand what the hacker did and why?
  • How to plan to avoid an incident in the first place?

About the author

This course is fast paced and very interesting and is delivered by one of the most well known experts in database security. Pete Finnigan created the SANS Oracle security step-by-step guide and the CIS Oracle benchmark used by NIST, USA DoD and more is a reference to secure Oracle databases. Pete worked out the mechanisms that Oracle used to protect PL/SQL and showed how they can be easily defeated at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas in 2006. Pete has published multiple books on databases security and speaks and publishes papers regularly. His company also produces the tool PFCLScan used to protect Oracle databases.
