Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Verifying Security of a Hosted Site

edi_guy writes: I'm getting ready to launch a small commercial website that will contain customer information in a MySQL database that will be run by a web-hosting service. While I have good experience with SQL databases from a programming point of view, I'm not an expert on securing them. Given all of the publicity around break-ins and data theft on a seemingly daily basis, it seems prudent to review this now rather than later.

What are suggestions on resources that would help verify that both myself and my hosting service are following best practices on securing a database backed website?

If God had not given us sticky tape, it would have been necessary to invent it.
