About This Workshop
In this workshop you will use the Database Security Assessment Tool (DBSAT) to find areas of risk in your database and determine appropriate strategies to mitigate that risk. DBSAT helps identify sensitive data and analyzes database configurations, users, their entitlements and security policies to uncover security risks and improve the security posture of Oracle Databases. You can use DBSAT to implement and enforce security best practices in your organization and accelerate compliance with regulations such as the EU GDPR. DBSAT is included with the Oracle Database, both Enterprise and Standard editions, and may be downloaded from MyOracleSupport by customers with a valid support agreement.

This lab is included in the DB Security Basics lab. If you have completed that lab, then there is no need to do this one.
