PostgreSQL Security Guide

Databases store an application’s most valuable asset: data. This data includes personal information like names, passwords, and street addresses, but it could also include company secrets. Having an insecure database is devastating for a few reasons:

  • Leaking personal data erodes trust from users and customers
  • Falling share prices or loss of revenue
  • You can be hit with regulatory penalties (e.g., GDPR)
  • In specific sectors, vulnerabilities can be used to cause physical harm
