Security has not always been as big an issue as it is now. In the past, DBAs were more focused on performance, high availability, or scalability. Today, security is an issue at the forefront of every IT project. Security should come by design and by default, so developers need the right tools to help make that happen. Recently, François Pons, senior principal product manager at Oracle, provided a video overview of the Oracle Database Security Assessment Tool (DBSAT), which helps identify areas where a database configuration, operation, or implementation introduces risks and also recommends changes and controls to mitigate those risks.
