A recent Unisphere survey found 20% of respondents anticipated some kind of data security breach over the coming year.
Who's watching the database? Not every DBA is as diligent as he or she should be, according to a study released this week.
Oracle (NSDQ: ORCL) and the International Oracle Users Group commissioned Unisphere to survey the user group's members in July and August and, out of 316 respondents, found 20% anticipated some kind of data security breach over the coming year.
Six acknowledged some kind of violation over the last year. Three out of four acknowledged they do not consider all of their database systems to be "locked down." It wasn't clear whether by "security breach" they meant a small, inadvertent viewing of payroll or other sensitive data by an internal employee or the loss of 94 million records, as occurred at TJX (owner of T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and other retailers) in January 2007. Survey participants acknowledged both insiders and outsiders pose significant risks.
