Whilst every database is different in terms of features, functions, configuration, administration and applications using it. An audit cannot simply be a process of running the same set of scripts or commands against each database to find a set of security issues but must include the knowledge of how to rectify the vulnerabilities and misconfigurations found.
The process of securing an Oracle database is made harder because of the myriad of options that Oracle provides and also because of the myriads of requirements set by the applications and processes used to access and manage the database.
