Databases can be a treasure trove of confidential data. A database is a system, which is formed by sets of organized data, which are stored in cloud or local servers. Databases contain confidential information, which may include customer data, employee’s salary data, address data, patient records, financial data, credit card numbers and much more. Database activity monitoring is a database audit process of monitoring database operations done by user or applications or processes. Any kind of data modification or access by any individual or application should be done with access or modification permissions. According to database security audit standards, any concurrent database access by several users without any database activity monitoring tool involves risks such as database hack or deletion. These risks can result in lost or stolen data, especially confidential data & can cause financial and legal complications. New cyber threats are forcing companies to implement database audit tools or train the development team with database security courses. Database security courses can help you to establish databases backup and recovery policies in the event of incidents caused by human error, natural disasters and in many cases by cyber-attacks. Alternatively, companies can take help of database security audit companies.
Database audit aims to protect the database from unauthorized activities that endanger the structure, availability, consistency and integrity of database. Also privacy and personal data protection regulations require the implementation of database audit process and database activity monitoring tools to align with data protection law. The database audit & database activity monitoring tools allows access control, restructure or update of the database according to the application requirements without changing the design of the data model. Companies can implement database audit solution at the application level, the infrastructure level or at database storage level.
The database security audit tool implemented at the database storage level (disk or tape), secures against the risks such as storage media loss or theft. But the same database audit tool cannot secure against malware infected infrastructure or internal employees.
The database audit solution implemented at the application level is another option that provides the highest level of control. But the same database audit solution can’t secure against loss or theft of storage media. If your enterprise implements a database security audit solution at the application level, it will require many changes in the application and at times is not a viable approach. Because of these complexities, many companies are choosing help of database audit experts. Our database audit and database activity monitoring tools provide database security at storage level, application level and the level of data flow.
