50 minutes conference


MySQL, Database Security

Security is always a challenge when it comes to data, but regulations like GDPR brings a new layer on top. With rules come more and more restrictions to access and manipulate data. Join us in this presentation to check security best practices, and traditional and new features available for MySQL, including features coming with the new MySQL 8.

In this talk, DBA's and sysadmins will walk through the security features available on the OS and MySQL:

- SO security
- Audit Plugin
- MySQL 8 features
- New caching_sha2_password
- Roles
- Password Management
- FIPS mode

We will share our experience of working with thousands of support customers, help the audience to become familiar with all the security concepts and methods, and give you the necessary knowledge to apply to your environment.
