Although I think I should be responsible for data security, I am not being charged with security side of things at all at work. So I can’t help but think, how do I know that my data is not being stolen right now? How do I know that our web site is not being used by hackers to siphon data directly out of my database. Hence the question.
I retract my request for ‘real’ story. Any story would do. In The Tao of Network Security Monitoring, author Richard Bejtlich told a story about detecting intrusion accidentally when the sound of web mp3 music became choppy while he was at work. It was a fansinating story. So I wonder if I would hear similar ones here from the DBA crowd.
