The competitive edge of many companies and public trust in government institutions can often depend on the security of the information held in databases. Breaches of that security — whether deliberate or accidental — can be profoundly damaging. Security is therefore a highly topical issue for both designers and users of database systems.
This book provides an authoritative account of security issues in database systems and shows how current commercial or future systems may be designed to ensure secrecy, integrity and confidentiality.
This book is suitable for advanced courses on database security, and will be an invaluable reference not only for database administrators and designers, system analysts and developers, but also IT managers responsible for the security of information systems.
One of the books you must own. Covers a lot more than just databases. What is surprising is that it is Italians who have written it. Even more surprising (considering the male/female ratio in security) is that three of the four authors are female.
All in all, a very worthwhile book that stands the test of time.
