- How do you measure concepts as strategic value, operational value, increased productivity, user/employee satisfaction, higher quality service, transparency, and empowered decision making?
- Is judicious use of the discretionary access control mechanisms of an operating system sufficient for the discretionary access control requirements of a database management system?
- Which security design patterns provides an alternative by requiring that a users authentication credentials be verified by the database before providing access to that users data?
- Are event logs are enable and record the user activities, exceptions, faults and information security events produced, kept and regularly reviewed for all database system servers?
- Do you have physical and logical security controls around information systems and databases to avoid unauthorised access and detect/prevent potential data leakage?
- How concerned is your organization about what the potential impact on your business would be of uncontrolled access to critical databases by system administrators?
- Does your organization ensure the integrity and consistency of all data stored in electronic form, as databases, data warehouses and data archives?
- What controls are in place to ensure that the latest versions of the database are installed with all the necessary/latest security patches /fixes?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Database Security projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
- Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
- Integrate recent advances in Database Security and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Database Security investments work better.
This Database Security All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
