Database Security and Compliance

Database Security and Compliance a top priority for CIOs


Databases have traditionally been secured against hackers through network security measures like firewalls and intrusion detection systems. While there is no doubt that these network security controls remain valuable, securing the databases themselves has become more critical, as networks are increasingly opened to wider access via the Internet.

The growing number of threats to databases and unauthorised access to the data within, is clearly creating on-going headaches for CIOs. Solving these headaches may not be easy, but by asking the right questions, CIOs can begin to overcome their Database Security and Compliance challenges.

The five critical security questions that are on the minds of all CIOs today are:

  • Where is my crucial data?
  • What is happening to the data?
  • Who is accessing the data?
  • Is the data private and secure?
  • Can I report on this?
