An overview of the Database Cloud Services and what you can do with it. Shakeeb is the Design Lead for Oracle Application Express.

Scott Spendolini – Securing Data with Oracle Advanced Security & APEX

There hasn’t been a time in history where data security and privacy is more prominent and important than it is today.  With data breaches occurring almost weekly and high profile news stories dominating the mainstream media, organizations are scrambling to make sure that their infrastructures – both on premise and in the cloud – are as secure as they can be.

Fortunately, this task is not as daunting as it seems – when you use the proper tools.  This session will highlight how using features of the Oracle Advanced Security option – particularly Redaction, VPD & encryption – can help developers build secure APEX applications.

It also has the ability to automatically resolve the issues through Corrective actions. This session will go over how events are generated, how notifications work, and how a simple corrective action can be built.
