Topic: WAF Isn't Enough. The Multi-Faceted Approach to Defend against SQL Injection Attacks
  
 +
WAFs are essential security mechanisms used on almost all commercial websites today. Despite the excellent protection they offer against many types of attacks, WAFs are inadequate to protect against today’s sophisticated SQL Injection (SQLi) attacks. This is because, fundamentally, a WAF does not understand database commands or database structure. Its protection is limited to a black list of blocked signatures. Even if a WAF did provide complete protection from web access, it still would be inadequate for database protection, because databases are accessed from many sources, not just from web-based applications. Attendees will learn best practices for defending against SQLi attacks using a comprehensive approach of:
 +
  Database firewalls
 +
  Pattern learning processes
 +
  Separation of duties
 +
  Risk-based policies
 +
  Masking of sensitive information
