BC Oracle data security policy

Remote DBA best practices by Donald Burleson


Burleson Consulting takes great pride in securing all remote database access information and we use industry best practices to ensure the safety and confidentiality of all client access information.


BC wrote the book on Oracle privacy, and we take confidentiality very seriously.  Whenever you entrust your database to remote Oracle experts you need to be able to trust your provider and know that they are using safe and secure methods for protecting your data and the access to your database. 


BC is the USA's oldest and largest remote DBA provider because we take great pains to ensure the safety and privacy of your mission-critical database.


BC is proud to use state of the art software and consultant screening techniques to ensure the privacy of your data:

  • No foreigners - One of the most serious problems with remote DBA providers is losing your information to an authorized foreigner, and having no recourse under foreign laws.  All BC consultants are United States citizens, born in the USA, who have undergone an extensive background check.  Upon request, BC can limit access to your database only to consultants who possess an active US SECRET security clearance. 

  • Secure Environment - BC takes your confidentiality very seriously.  Your central account information and all client documentation is stored in a locked-down secured area with armed personnel and trained attack dogs.  Your information never leaves the USA and it is only disclosed to BC consultants on a need-to-know basis.  All BC consultants understand security and follow industry best practices for securing your remote connection information and we have never had a security breach.  Click here to read our research on securing Oracle databases over the Internet.

  • Secure access software - BC uses only secure access methods for all remote databases, using tools such as SecureCRT and Secure Shell (ssh) to guarantee your data safety and confidentiality.

  • Database auditing - BC wrote the book on Oracle auditing with the bestselling book "Oracle Privacy Security Auditing".  Upon request, BC can install a complete auditing solution for your databases, providing reports that show all data access, both local and remote.

  • Trustworthy consultants - Burleson Consulting has one of the most stringent hiring requirements in the database industry and all of our consultants are checked for good moral values and a clean criminal record.  BC only considers USA Oracle Professionals with extensive real-world experience and unimpeachable credentials. Click here to read the BC minimum requirements for remote DBA consultants.  Our clients expect world-class Oracle consulting, and our standards are high because our Corporate clients have high expectations.

In lieu of an active US security clearance, BC consultants must pass a background check and be free of any criminal convictions (except minor traffic violations).

Further, any acts of moral turpitude (history of drug use, dishonesty, lying, cheating, theft) are grounds for immediate rejection, and all applicants must sign a waiver to disclose personal information and agree to submit to a polygraph exam.

  • Secure control of your data - Burleson Consulting aggressively honors your non-disclosure agreement and BC will never disclose our relationship with your company, and never release any details about your database, no matter how trivial.  All information about BC clients is stored in a secured environment without any external access.

  • Internal Security Audits - BC conducts periodic internal audits checks of our on-site client data, and all BC consultants carefully protect your access information, never exposing it to the Internet or sharing it with unauthorized personnel.


It's all about trust


Burleson Consulting understands the value of your mission critical database and we take great care to guard your confidential information and ensure that your information is disclosed only to trustworthy BC consultants, and only on a need-to-know basis.
