Accessing sensitive data is the goal of most, if not all, cyberattacks. Hackers target databases because most mission-critical and sensitive data is stored there. As such, organizations must prioritize database security, and the first step is data intelligence – knowing what sensitive data you have, how your database system is configured, and who has access.
cyberattacks have been on the rise, and the costs to businesses have been significant. In addition, hackers are executing increasingly sophisticated and malicious attacks. Because zero trust requires the identification and authentication of each device and user before allowing access to the network, it is possible to contain, and even avoid attacks. This is due to network segmentation which restricts the range of access and reduces the spread of attack.
