      Presentation Overview

      Topic: Incorporating Database Security into the SOC/NOC

      Presenter: Mehlam Shakir

      Abstract: Database security is often viewed as requiring special skills and dedicated resources to meet regulatory and security objectives making it more expensive and harder to implement as part of the overall corporate compliance and security initiative.

      Mel Shakir, CTO of NitroSecurity and architect of the NitroView Database Monitor solution will discuss the progress in the database activity monitoring (DAM) space, why not to treat database security as a point solution, and, how to leverage existing SOC/NOC resources to provide comprehensive database security and incidence response.
