Database security is the system, processes and procedures that protect a database from unintended activity. Unintended activity can be categorized as authenticated misuse, malicious attacks or inadvertent mistakes made by authorized individuals or processes. Database security is also a specialty within the broader discipline of computer security. Information is the most critical resource for many organizations. The protection of data against unauthorized access or corruption due to malicious actions is one of the main problems faced by system administrators. Due to the growth of networked data, security attacks have become a dominant problem in practically all information infrastructures.
