Summary : Databases are the single most valuable
asset a business owns. Databases store and process critical healthcare,
financial and corporate data, yet businesses place very little focus on
securing and logging the underlying database transactions. As well, in
an effort to trim costs, many organizations are consolidating several
databases on to single mission critical systems which are frequently
targeted by attackers. With large data security breaches occurring at an
alarming rate, several database logging tools have been released in the
industry, however adoption of these products is slow leaving these
mission critical systems vulnerable and ill-equipped for traditional
forensic analysis.
