Rebecca Bond and her team's book Understanding DB2 9 Security is a must read for any DBA, regardless of the product that they support. Much of the book covers sound techniques that should be followed to ensure proper protection of precious data.
I read much of the book while it was being written.... and I must say that the authors have succeeded in making this topic readable... and as the cover mentions... understandable. Yesterday when I spoke to Grant Hutchison who is in the middle of reading the book, he stressed that the parts he's read so far are so well written that he thinks the style should be used to describe many other topics as well.
Fred Sobotko of FRS Consulting has also read the book and put a very favourable review in his blog.
Today I noticed that an excerpt of chapter 2 can be found on Sear
