Data security breaches are in the news regularly. In many cases, these breaches are due to poor or incomplete security configurations. In this session we’ll look at the basic Microsoft SQL Server security model and what you need to look at for your own system. We’ll cover the top things to check both inside and outside of SQL Server to lock down your databases while still providing the access your users need. Finally, we’ll also talk about how what you should be auditing regularly to ensure your SQL Server stays secured.
