Exploring SQL Server 2005 and 2008 Security

Return to Session Listings

Presenter: Don Kiely

Session 09 (20:00 GMT on May 19)

Session Details

There are few corporate assets as valuable in the information age as data. Enterprises spend billions to collect and generate it, slice and dice it in every conceivable way to mine marketplace intelligence from it, and replicate and back it up using elaborate, redundant schemes. Yet it is all too common to slack on security. Sure, SQL Server 2005 and 2008 are designed to be “secure by default,” but once you add databases and start letting users and their applications access the server, you’ve already poked holes in the security. SQL Server comes with plenty of features that let you secure data, but it can be hard to get a handle on the right ones to use in your environment. This session explores the myriad security features in SQL Server and how to put them to use in applications.
