SQL Server Security

SQL Server has everything you need to secure your server and data against today's sophisticated attacks. But before you can use these security features effectively, you need to understand the threats you face and a few basic security concepts.

This session is for all audiences
  • Administrators (what can you do to lock down a box)
  • Developers (how can you write secure code)
  • Managers (when the previous two guys tell you they need to spend time & money on security, listen to them)

Gather from 5:30pm, session starts at 6:00pm
