As a society that relies on technology to thrive, we face a growing number of potentially catastrophic threats to network security daily. DATABASE SECURITY delivers the know-how and skills that today's professionals must have to protect their company's technology infrastructures, intellectual property, and future prosperity. From database installation and testing to auditing and SQL Injection, this text delves into the essential processes and protocols required to prevent intrusions, and supports each topic with real-world examples that help future IT professionals understand their critical responsibilities. Unlike most texts on database security, which take a computer scientist's analytical approach, Database Security focuses on implementation, and was written expressly for the expanding field of Information Technology careers.
