This week’s ISSessions is going to be a treat for you all! Make sure you join in at 7:00 PM EST on Thursday, November 12th, either through Discord or YouTube.

This week we have our community manager Cem and alumni Adam delivering their hot takes on the news followed by a Project Den from vice presidente Louai. Then, after a short break we will come back with our night’s special guest speaker – Prashant Lal. Prashant is an Enterprise Architect working at Oracle Canada ULC and will be presenting a fascinating talk on “Database Security: Protecting the Crown Jewels.”

Database Security: Protecting the Crown Jewels
According to Forbes, there are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created every day. To even wrap your head around that number is difficult, but how about keeping it secure?

Prashant is an Enterprise Architect working at Oracle Canada ULC, and he has graciously offered to show us how Oracle converged databases are the future of database security. Just as the smartphone combined a camera, notebook, laptop, and browser into an exceptionally convenient form factor, Oracle aims to do the same with databases. This convergence was implemented in response to the modern, large-scale sophisticated web applications that required much more functionality(and inherently more security) than what other companies were providing. We hope to see you all there! You definitely won’t want to miss this ISSessions meet-up 🙂
