Database credentials are the keys that allow users and applications to retrieve and display customer data. If these credentials get into the wrong hands, they can be used to steal credit card numbers, passwords, personal information or other sensitive data. Unfortunately, database credentials are often casually left lying around in text files, wiki pages, run books and even log files. Users and applications often share credentials, making it difficult to know who or what accessed the database. Some organizations use the same credentials to access different database servers, increasing the risk of multiple environments being compromised.

Join us at this month's HUG and learn how to use Vault to reduce risk, gain visibility, and secure your data with HashiCorp Vault.

Our presenter is Sean Carolan. Sean is a HashiCorp Solutions Engineer based in Austin, Texas. In his past life Sean was a Linux system administrator. His interests include cloud computing, robotics, automation, gardening, outdoor activities and yoga.

Food, soda and adult craft beverages will be served.
