Being new to database design and implementation, I have often wondered how Government Entities, Coorporations, etc. of all kinds manage the Super User/Admin. From what I know, in the databae world the Super User is all powerful and Godlike.


How do entitities like Government Agencies, Corporations, etc manage the "Super User" to prevent the missuse of the data when it comes to privacy and security. I guess the question is "Who watches the Guard who is guarding the treasure?"


I guess you could have multiple individuals with" Super User" level and they keep an eye on each other. I suppose this would be possible in FileMaker with permissions.
