Types of Database Security

Database security addresses many issues, which includes:

  • Various legal and ethical issues regarding the right to access certain information.

  • Policy issues at the governmental, institutional, or corporate level as to what kinds of information should not be made publicly available.

  • System-related issues such as the system levels at which various security functions should be enforced.

  • The need in some organizations to identify multiple security levels and to categorize the data and users based on these classifications.
