Upcoming Free IOUG Webinar: Securing MySQL

Next week I will give a free IOUG webinar on Securing MySQL on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT (17:00 GMT):

Securing MySQL is extremely important, but often is not done properly. I will explain the different ways to secure MySQL. In addition to securing users and privileges, file permissions and encrypted connectivity will be discussed. The MySQL server options that contribute to MySQL security will be pointed out, along with tips for eliminating unsecure external scripts. For those who want more auditing capabilities, this session will explain how to see all login attempts (successful and not) and how to lock out accounts with repeated failed logins. The session will conclude with guidelines about how to create security policies for your organization.
