Course description

Securing Databases | Database Security

Securing Databases is an essential training course for DBAs and developers who need to produce secure database applications and manage secure databases. Data, databases, and related resources are at the heart of most IT infrastructures. These assets can have high value from a business, regulatory, and liability perspective, and must be protected accordingly. This course showcases demonstrations on how to repeatedly attack and then defend various assets associated with a fully functional database. This approach illustrates the mechanics of how to secure databases in the most practical of terms.

Security experts agree that the least effective approach to security is "penetrate and patch". It is far more effective to "bake" security into an application throughout its lifecycle. After spending significant time trying to defend a poorly designed (from a security perspective) database application, students will learn how to build secure their databases and applications, starting at project inception.
