Data breaches seem to be a daily occurrence, so much so that seeing an article about the latest company to fall victim draws little attention outside of those immediately impacted. That is of course unless that company is yours and data security is your responsibility! While companies continue to invest heavily in fortifying networks with firewalls and event monitors, spend heavily on user education, and add layer after layer of complex protection, incidents continue to rise. What we’re seeing is an alarming trend of protecting against the most complex attack vectors and ignoring the simplest ones: an improperly configured database.

Join Steve Hoffman, VP of Engineering and Daniel Guzman Burgos, Technical Lead as they discuss the Percona Monitoring and Management: Security Threat Tool which was designed to keep constant watch for some of the most common database security mistakes and draw immediate attention to the issues that can't wait to be addressed.
