Solaris 11.1 STIG update [34115]
Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG)

Jim Laurent writes, "I am still in the process of creating a Solaris 11.1 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) with DISA Field Security Office. The process is long and detailed requiring significant testing and review by DISA for final approval. The STIG items are complete (pending DISA's approval). While I can't predict how long the final approval will take, if you are a DoD customer wishing to run Solaris 11, you may contact your Oracle systems sales team to receive a draft copy in spreadsheet form.

STIGs are guidelines to assist DoD customers in securing their systems. It is NOT required to have a DISA STIG document to run Solaris 11 in your environment.

Top Database Security Trends in 2014 [34002]
two-thirds of organizations' sensitive and regulated data resides in their databases

An article in thie month's Oracle Information InDepth, SECURITY INSIDE OUT EDITION

"Analysts estimate that two-thirds of organizations' sensitive and regulated data resides in their databases - and the total amount of that sensitive data is growing fast, along with the rest of the digital universe. One analyst claims it will reach 35 zettabytes by 2020.

As a result, security professionals and database administrators need to be asking two fundamental questions.

  • Where is all of my sensitive data?
  • Who has access to that data?

As we look forward into 2014, the following trends highlight the importance of data security.

  • Trend #1: More Organizations Will Know Where Their Sensitive Data Resides
  • Trend #2: Data Encryption Won't Keep up with Data Growth Rates
  • Trend #3: Regulations and Other Forms of Compliance Will Continue to Expand

See the article for details.
