Payal Singh (OmniTI Computer Consulting Inc.) delivers the talk, "Securing Your Data on PostgreSQL", on DAY 1 of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2018, 4/24, at Santa Clara, CA.

While most applications are aware of the minimum basic security features, there is often a lack of understanding about how best to manage them, especially with major security features being released with every major version of Postgres. As for advanced features, sadly most of them go unnoticed and unused in most cases. This talk will cover the various features that Postgres provides for data security, from the very basic to the most advanced:

- Postgres HBA and types of authentications
- Permissions and ACL in Postgres
- SSL/TLS
- Row-level security
- Event triggers
- PCI security implementation techniques
- Filesystem permission options
- Data encryption management in Postgres
- Table level auditing and storage efficiency
- Monitoring for SQL injections
- Other PostgreSQL security features
- Tips for security enhancement for Postgres as a Service user (RDS, GCE, Azure Postgres)
- Upcoming security features in Postgres 11
- Features that Postgres currently lacks
