Information Technology has become increasingly data-driven, requiring I.T. professionals to dramatically rethink how we protect corporate assets. This course strives to provide a perspective that intersects several technology disciplines: database administration, web-based application development, and technology management. Taking a defense-in-layers perspective, Database Security will provide students with an opportunity to gain an understanding of how data is protected from the perimeter to the data. Students will understand the nature of the types of threats and vulnerabilities to the web-based applications and underlying databases, and how to develop strategies to most effectively protect an enterprise's data.
