Geek Sync Webcast : Database Security Risks You Haven’t Considered, But Need To

Presenter: Kevin Beaver

Database security is arguably the most important part of an information security program that many people aren’t paying attention to. Some might assume that network or server security controls are adequate to protect databases. They’re not. Furthermore, gaps in IT governance processes often lead to security policies that aren’t enforced which can directly impact database systems. This is not only creating tangible business risks but it’s also creating numerous compliance gaps.

Join IDERA and Kevin Beaver as he walks through how you can be more proactive with database security. He’ll share specific database security oversights he’s finding in his work along with some tips on how to better integrate databases into your overall information risk management initiatives.
