Data base security is the protection of information that is used in databases. The type of information stored in databases may include personal identification information, such as social insurance numbers or health care account numbers, as well as birthdates, addresses and other private things. To protect this information from being accessed by the wrong people, layers of data security are added to systems, and these layers may include detailed password and username information and privileged user access services.

  • Limiting access

By limiting who has access to data, the system creator, or Master, can impose more security on the database. However, there is always the possibility that a data base may be hacked; this sort of hacking may happen when someone finds out a person's password and username, or guesses these details correctly.

  • Hacking programs are a problem

Unfortunately, there are actually password-hacking programs out there that hackers sell to interested parties or post to the Internet, where they can be downloaded and used, free of charge, by anyone who wants to try them. Obviously, business information found in databases may be of great interest to competitors of a company, so there are excellent reasons for maintaining data base security.

Many business owners who operate and update databases filled with sensitive information hire IT professionals or data security consultants to add extra data security to their spread sheets, online forms, and other database systems. It's very wise to spend lots of time figuring out the best ways to protect information, as getting hacked can have far-reaching consequences, such as loss of trust by customers, or digital thefts. To learn more about data security, check out blogs and websites by some of the industry leaders, such as Norton software, who provide data security in the form of efficient anti-virus software or anti-malware program applications.

If you are interested in cloud security for your data, you can secure it with data detection and response (DDR) technology from Dig Security. With DDR, you can provide visibility, control, and real-time protection of your data assets in any cloud. This is especially relevant for large companies storing their data in virtual clouds. Order the demo version to see how it works and get full control over your data in the cloud.

Today, with the growth of Internet access, the number of hackers looking for suspicious networks has also increased significantly. Our first suggestion on our GDPR compliance checklist is to hire someone who is well versed in GDPR compliance and most liked privacy consultancy. For those who don't know about data protection, I can tell you what I mean, I'm talking about the General Data Protection Regulation.

Without calling it a DPO, small businesses are strongly encouraged to have a peer or specialized external firm to organize the organization's GDPR compliance (to avoid the stringent requirements that come with it). Small and medium businesses often appoint a GDPR coordinator, who is supported by the regulator.
