Oracle Veteran Jonathan Intner will Explain Data Security Pitfalls and How Database Administrators Can Avoid Them

WHO: Jonathan Intner, Solution Architect for Vormetric. Mr. Intner is an expert in information security and database administration for the Oracle platform. He currently helps large enterprises architect and deploy database encryption solutions. Mr. Intner has held senior database security, design, and administration roles with several leading pharmaceutical companies, software vendors, and a large testing lab.
