Database Security Reviews
We offer database security reviews for all major database vendors.
The configuration of the database server operating system, the database server software and the configuration of the database and settings are reviewed against industry benchmarks. This ensures that data stored within the database is secure and only accessible to the intended users and is stored securely.
The major database vendors covered:
- Microsoft SQL Server
- MySQL Server
- IBM DB2
Typical checks are software version and patch checking, user permissions and privileges, password policies, event auditing, stored procedure security, data storage encryption, service permissions and reviewing default settings against industry standard benchmarks.
We recommend that the server operating system is reviewed as well as the database, this ensures all areas of risk are covered for complete assurance.
