SQL Server Security: Best Practices 2021

In today’s world where digital data is increasing exponentially by the day, the administration and querying of that data are also becoming more and more complex. This huge amount of data is stored in the form of collections within a database. However, in order to create, read, update or delete that data, the database administrators needed the ability to query the database.


Databases, a hot spot for data leakage

With businesses becoming ever more data-driven and data-reliant, databases have become their default digital asset storehouse, providing immense benefits of organisation, retrievability, and analytical insight. Covid-19 and the move to remote or hybrid work have only intensified the demand for databases, particularly those distributed through cloud technology. But that concentration of information, however convenient, makes databases a singular target for attacks and a primary security concern.

Securing Access to Your MongoDB Database

MongoDB is one of the most popular open-source databases. Unfortunately, this also means ubiquity of misconfigured and unsecured MongoDB deployments out in the wild. Just in recent years, we’ve seen several hacks involving thousands of MongoDB databases left exposed online without any protection, making them ripe for the hacker’s picking. It doesn’t have to be this way, though.


How should databases be protected?

There’s simply no denying that Data is the currency of the future. All businesses have one or more databases and are naturally heavily reliant on them not only to store information, but also to utilise the data to make business informed decisions. Whether it’s payroll data, employee records, customer information, financial information or even inventory data today’s list of Data is endless.
