About This Workshop
This workshop is a hands-on lab dedicated to the features and functionality of Oracle database security against the most common cyberattacks.

Through the example of a Ransomware attack, you will explore how attackers operate and what features you should use to prevent, detect and mitigate their attacks.

For more details on each of the featured capabilities in this lab, please refer to the LiveLabs *DB Security Basics* and *DB Security Advanced*

Based on an OCI architecture deployed in just a few minutes with a simple internet connection, this workshop allows you to test common database security use cases in an entirely pre-configured environment by the Oracle Database Security Product Management team.
