Round Table Breakfast Briefing Event

Date: 14th June 2022
Time: 8:00-10:00am
Venue: Eight Members Club Bank, 1 Change Alley, London,

About the event:

Today enterprises operate in a very different way; they are more global than ever before and employees are much more distributed, with remote and hybrid-working the norm. This trend was already underway before the pandemic hit but has accelerated in the last two years as a result of Covid.

In parallel, the escalating threat landscape is creating record threat levels as hackers take advantage of the rich pickings a distributed environment creates. As a result, cybercrime has intensified, and a record-breaking number of ransomware attacks of increasing severity are taking place year-on-year.

Managing all these risks while providing responsive information services to employees, partners and customers is becoming ever more challenging.

In this breakfast briefing, we offer an insight into the key data security challenges and the best practices organisations need to put in place. 

We will focus on database & sensitive data security, as well as compliance; we’ll demonstrate the challenges around these areas, as well as the practical procedures to combat them, especially with regard to third party risks and remote work.

Pete Finnigan is a widely regarded expert on the subject of securing data in Oracle databases. Pete was very influential in setting the standards used across the industry to harden and lock down Oracle databases. He created the SANS Oracle security step-by-step guide that was the original source for the Center for Internet Security standard for securing Oracle databases. This standard is closely reflected by other standards for Oracle such as NIST, USA DoD and ISACA.

Pete speaks regularly at conferences worldwide and is the author of a number of books on Oracle Security. He runs his company Limited which provides training on all aspects of securing Oracle, Security health checks, Forensics, consultancy and design, and also sells five software products; PFCLScan to perform your own database security health check; PFCLCode to analyse your PL/SQL for security issues; PFCLObfuscate to protect the IPR in your deployed PL/SQL; PFCLForensics to allow you to respond to a breach of an Oracle database and PFCLCookie to analyse your websites for use of cookies to help with GDPR.
