An interesting listen. One of Plynt's industry peers and soon to be partner Ntirety hosted a live webinar on the "Value of Database Penetration & Vulnerability Testing" and invited Paresh Amin our US VP of Enterprise Business and Strategy to speak on this topic. As a security practitioner and a certified CISSP he was excited at the opportunity to share his experience with Ntirety's clients and prospects. As Paresh states, "There are many options open to an organization when looking for approaches to securing your databases and it can get confusing very quickly".

In today's highly sensitive information security world everyone (including the DBAs) have responsibilities in protecting their corporate and customer data from both internal and external threats.
