Database refers to the organized collection of data that is stored and accessed electronically. Databases are mainly used to store and retrieve data for personal or corporate use. They are also used by organizations to make important corporate decisions and strategies. Customers can use corporate databases to collect data from their applications as well. Since most of the information and data are stored in databases, it is important to safeguard it from hackers and other cyber-attacks. If a hacker gains access to a database, all sensitive data and information present can be at risk. Therefore, necessary precautions should be taken in order to protect databases from attacks.
