A database is a collection of data of different types, while DBMS is a set of specifications that tells how data is to be stored in a database and how data should be accessed by the components of the database. The data and the metadata when exposed to the outside world may endanger the security of the DBMS. Therefore precautions should be taken that the data should be available to the right user at any point of time. In this study the architecture of the database is understood and tried to identify the vulnerabilities and threats related to them. Also it is noticed that if the architecture of the database is secured it would provide secure data management system.
