Let’s first cover Oracle as this is the main topic of this article, and the series we are starting. Here we will teach basics, and some fundamental topics relating to Oracle.




Oracle is a database which collects, stores, and retrieve your data. Their servers manage a large amount of data, which can be operated by multiple users at one time. It updates the data saved in real-time that anyone with access can go through any transaction by just some clicks. 


As Oracle is one of the most famous software, they gave there best in providing their users security, and user friendly experience. No one other than those with proper access can run through your files nor can mess up your business transactions. Database security is classified into two categories: System Security and Data Security;

1. System Security:

To access data where oracle is implemented first you have to get access of a valid username, and a password. 

System security mechanism checks whether a user is authorized to connect to the database or not, and which operations can a user perform.

2. Data Security:

Not everyone having a valid username and password can access complete data. Responsibilities are assigned to some persons to perform certain actions. (e.g: An employee is giving access to Oracle in which he/she can only insert data but can not change or delete any data. Likewise an employee can insert and edit data, but can not delete it.)

This clearly indicates how much Oracle is looking forward for the best security for their users.
