TakeDownCon Dallas 2011 starts today. This 2 day conference, which is in its debut year, is designed for technical information security and IT professionals of all levels.
The first keynote will be given by Josh Shaul and Alex Rothacker on the Anatomy Of A Database Attack. Today’s web-accessible databases are especially susceptible to attacks, partially because of the appeal of their lucrative repositories of data, and partially because IP entry affords hackers a broader range of methods with which to invade and gain access to database information. In this presentation, the Josh and Alex will describe some of the sophisticated methods used in invading enterprise databases, as well as provide guidelines and best practices on security and compliance in a variety of database systems including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, and Sybase.
