This first project will lay the foundation for the rest of the course. Before we can discuss how to
secure a database we must first understand exactly what is a database, the types of threats against
databases and why database security is needed.
Over the next 3 weeks you will conduct research and write a 3 – 5-page paper (excluding
references and cover page) which discusses ways that users (both internal and external) can
harm the organization’s data. You will discuss some methods organizations use or should use to
secure their data. This assignment is based on the content of Chapters 1 and 2 of our required
text. The following approach is suggested.
Step 1: Begin with an introduction which should explain the purpose of the paper. The next
section should define a database and a database management system and describe and explain the
components of a database (fields, records, tables, keys). Explain the difference between a flat
model and the relational database model and discuss the disadvantages of the flat model and the
advantages of using a relational model instead.
Step 2: Identify and discuss the 3 main security objectives when protecting information systems
(CIA triangle) and identify and explain security threats to information systems, including insider
and outsider threats.
Step 3: Identify and explain the four options mentioned in Chapter 1 of the text for restoring a
network in the event of a disaster.
Step 4: Conclude the paper with a conclusion/summary paragraph
