Database Security Asessment | Briskinfosec

Briskinfosec’s Database Security Assessment is an integrated approach which provides systematic and proactive security to the database. Brisk Infosec’s penetration testing eliminates the risk associated with both web and database specific attacks and supports compliance with relevant standards, laws & regulations. We leverage an open-source or commercial database vulnerability assessment tool along with manual testing to discover the known database security vulnerabilities. Briskinfosec’s database security testing is done to prevent undesired information disclosure and data modification, while ensuring the availability of the necessary service.

Briskinfosec’s Database Penetration testing methodology is cited below:

  • We do Black Box and White Box Database penetration testing.
    • Black box security test will be done without login, like an external attacker.
    • White box security testing will be done with the given credentials.
  • Authorization control
  • Access control – connection verification,
  • Access control – request verification
  • Password Policy
  • Privileges and Roles
  • Configuration Management
  • User Account Management
  • Verifying the secure connections
  • Verifying the security plugins
  • Auditing.

The types of databases we test include:

  • SQL
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
  • Sybase
  • MongoDB
  • PostgreSQL

    Database holds valuable business assets such as sensitive customer data, payment card details, product and pricing data, employee records, blueprints, intellectual property and supplier information.

    • These data shouldn’t end up in the wrong hands or be compromised in other ways; it can cause you to be left facing financial and reputational damages.
    • Database Security Assessment should ideally be conducted on a regular basis and not just at the point of going live with a new database.
    • The information contained within these databases is not only critical from a confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) perspective, but is essential to the company’s ability to operate as a going concern and requires specialist knowledge to identify the risks associated with a data breach.
    • Recent years has seen a marked increase in the number of reported cases of data repositories being targeted or in the worst case scenario, being compromised.
