Database administrators are responsible for protecting the database and valuable information stored in the database from being compromised.
More then often there is a limited ability to influence design decisions during software development lifecycle or to enforce secure coding practices in the way the application interacts with end users or access data stored in the database. Stateful firewall inspection does not provide sufficient protection against SQL injection or other attacks directed against the database.
This lecture provides an insight into how ModSecurity web application firewall could be used to help identify incoming attacks against the application and the underlying database and to detect and contain breaches.
