Fifty-three percent classified database security as a "high" IT security priority at their companies. Twelve percent called it "low" priority or said they were unsure. The larger the company, the more likely database security is a high priority. Some 64 percent of organizations with 10,000 or more employees considered security a "high" priority. Forty-five percent with between one and 1,000 considered it "high."

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.
