If you are relatively near to Charleston, SC, there’s a SQL Saturday there this weekend, December 13th!

SQL Saturday #354 – Charleston, SC

Looking at the speaker list, if you’re able to attend you’ll get top notch training for FREE! For instance, the SQL Server Legend, Kevin Kline, will be present to give a presentation and participate in a career panel. Whatever your focus is with SQL Server, there looks to be topics covering it.

If you’re looking for security, come early, as my talk is at 9 AM. If you can’t make it, I’ve already uploaded my presentations and scripts to the site.

 

Presenting on Top SQL Server Vulnerabilities

On February 19th, 2014, I’ll be giving a webinar from 3-4 PM Eastern on the Top SQL Server Vulnerabilities. You can register here for it.

It is being provided by MSSQLTips.com and GreenSQL. Here’s what I’m covering:

Your goal is to have a secure SQL Server installation. However, you don’t have forever to get the job done. Nor do you have an infinite amount of time and resources to monitor the installation after it’s in production.

  • What are the biggest things to focus on?
  • What will be your most painful headaches going forward?
  • What should you be watching for to detect a potential compromise?

In this webinar, I’ll answer these questions so you can quickly and effectively configure and test your SQL Server for optimal security. We will also give you a glimpse into GreenSQL’s offerings to secure your SQL Servers. For those on a tight budget, scripts will be provided and free tools referenced.
