SQL Server Security Learning Guide

SQL Server is a popular target to Internet hackers. Make sure SQL Server is locked down from the get-go and continually hardened to prevent attacks.


Robyn Lorusso, Editor An unsecured SQL Server is like an open invitation to Internet hackers: They may exploit weaknesses in the operating system running SQL Server, take control of SQL Server services or simply access pieces of data that were intended to be inaccessible. Whatever the technique, your data will ultimately be compromised. Here you will learn how to lock down SQL Server from the get-go and prevent attacks before any damage is done. You'll also get a technical overview of new security enhancements in SQL Server 2005, set to launch in November.
