+ - Ask Slashdot: Verifying Security of a Hosted Site

edi_guy (2225738) 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.

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?"
