Data is fundamental in today’s digital life. Therefore, the essential need is to protect data from unauthorized users. Choosing a database application depends on cost. Business database is expensive to a great degree. This paper delineates database security utilizing true blue benefit manhandle and cryptography. There are numerous dangers in the database, which releases the data for the denied purpose. Among the fundamental dangers in database security, this paper will portray the true blue benefit abuse. Among the approaches to secure data from gatecrashers/assailants is by using cryptography techniques, the access-control approach is the primary imperative technique to secure database by using cryptography and row-level security. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2019.
