Database security concerns the use of a broad range of information security controls to protect databases (potentially including the data, the database applications or stored functions, the database systems, the database servers and the associated network links) against compromises of their confidentiality, integrity and availability. It involves various types or categories of controls, such as technical, procedural/administrative and physical. Database security is a specialist topic within the broader realms of computer security, information security and risk management.
In this unit the learner will explore security risks to database systems and mitigation techniques. Understanding the function of computer programming is essential to understanding the dark arts of ‘Black Hat Hackers.’ Learners will examine (as a rolling case study) Python as a popular contemporary programming language. The symbiotic link between developments in computer programming and vulnerabilities to hacking will be examined and explored.
