As database security becomes more important over time, this brings its effects on database performance to the forefront. Security methods cannot overly impact end-users. At the same time, it is not possible to sacrifice security compliance due to the risk of data breaches and the requirements to meet regulatory guidelines. Because of conflicting goals, it is best practice not to combine the roles of database administrator and system administrator. Proper capacity planning ensures that databases have sufficient capacity and system resources to meet the demands of security and performance. However, the exact relationship between security and performance is not well understood. As such, security suffers from inferior metrics. Via indirect metrics, it is possible to optimize the combined security and performance of databases. It is necessary to incur additional cost to achieve both security and performance. Performance metrics can be used to detect security issues. Understand baseline behavior to recognize abnormal patterns. After establishing normal activities, maintain security by following best practices. These steps will help to improve the ability to achieve the apparently conflicting goals of improving both database security and performance.
