Continuing IT Training Program
Securing and Auditing Database Servers
Using two of the most commonly encountered database server products, Oracle Database and SQL Server, this course will explore the security and controls of database servers used in financial institutions, including banking applications and data. As an advanced course, the content is technical in nature, and the course is not meant to provide 'how to' guidance for conducting an IT bank examination.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Define database capabilities and terminology including activities needed to provide security and control over the software;
- Discuss associated risks, exposures, database approach to client/server and web processing environments; and,
- Recognize the impact on enterprise organizations, security profiles, and information technology standards to assess bank’s risk profile and report to bank management.
