Oracle security maintenance and monitoring
Posted on 2013-05-21
I have been asked to identify some best practice "post implementation" (i.e. DB servers in production) routine security maintenance and monitoring tasks that a good DBA should be performing on routine basis. I was thinking along the lines of ensuring latest patches applied, occasional vetting DB level accounts and permissions once per quarter, ensuring no config changes have been made outsid change cotnrol etc. Can you give some pointers on any self audits you do to routinely reverify the security configuration of your Databases, and how often you do such checks.
