It could even be an insider, a disgruntled employee trying to access information he or she is not authorized for. Whatever the reason may be, this kind of activity arouses suspicion and should be investigated. Oracle can audit such attempts, even if they are not successful.

Remember, this intent is not just to catch hackers but also to document the accesses to medical databases by legitimate users. In most cases, the very fact that the access is recorded is deterrent enough for malicious activity, much like the presence of a surveillance camera in a parking lot. In Chapter 8, we will explore the details of this type of auditing, with scripts on how to set up and retrieve details to find patterns of abuse and potential threats.
