The collaboration and sharing of information made possible by social media has enabled a new class of social engineering attacks, greatly increasing the risks posed by insiders for most organizations. Consider that LinkedIn searches for "Database Administrator" and "System Administrator" return over one million potential targets. In fact, stolen credentials were involved in 84% of the attacks that have resulted in over one billion records stolen from database servers. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle on February 21, 2013 for Part 2 of our Security Briefings series as we focus on database security and the preventive controls that can be used to mitigate the risks posed by insiders and attackers exploiting legitimate access to data and database infrastructure by adopting a defense-in-depth strategy.
