The paper will cover the importance of databases and why their contents should be secure. Databases are a necessity in today's corporate environment. Even though databases are important to business productivity, their security in most cases are still considered second to other areas. The paper will cover the initial concepts of database. In order to properly place security controls, we must understand the necessary risks involved with improper database security. It is also necessary to cover the types of threats and attacks that can be launched to gain access to or disrupt access to a database. As it would be a long process to cover all possible controls to securing databases, it better to just cover a single concept in database security such as encryption.
