Many a company did not take security serious enough and has paid the price. The problem is not only did they pay the price, but so did there customers. Too many times in the past few years, have I had to request new credit cards to protect myself.

One of the most important jobs of a DBA is the protection of your corporate data. From Internal and external threats. As if the job of a DBA was not hard enough, they now have the added burden of dealing with Security. In many small companies the DBA is your defacto security officer.
Many of Ntirety's clients ask us what their options are in terms of protecting the Database from External and Internal threats. The correct answer to that question depends on a lot of factors specific to your situation and budget.
A good friend of mine Paresh Amin has agreed to do a webinar on the value of Database Penetration & vulnerability testing. I have known Paresh since he worked at State Street Bank. Paresh is a CISSP, former Director of Information Security with Experian. Paresh is very articulate and very knowledgeable about all the options open to you when securing your database. Paresh is very knowledgeable on the whole suite of software and hardware options also. Anyone interested in learning more on the topic of Database Security should attend this webinar.
