Almost two-thirds said it was either highly unlikely or somewhat unlikely their organizations would fall victim to a data breach within the next 12 months. Some 82 percent said they were not aware of any data breaches occurring at their organizations in 2008. Only 6 percent said a breach had occurred, and 12 percent did not know if one had occurred.

Oracle database administrators might claim to fear data breaches and talk big about security features, but not all employ the strongest data leak prevention practices. A survey of 316 Oracle database users by the Independent Oracle Users Group offers a window into the security concerns of Oracle database administrators and the database security and data leak prevention tactics in use. The Oracle OpenWorld user conference Sept. 21 to 25 shines a light on Oracle database security features and practices.
