Hi All,

I am working for a small company that is looking to tighten their overall IT security via ISO 27001 compliance.
Are there any references that I should be looking at from a SQL DBA's point of view specific to this standard?
The ISO manuals are rather robust to say the least.

Topics I'm currently addressing are below:
-SQL Patching
-TDE
-SA (account and role)
-SQL Port
-SQL service discovery
-SQL login Auditing


Am I missing anything severe?

Cheers
-RR

In most business with its own implemented security management system that they processing business operation such as Employee information, client details, business deals. In today’s business environment significant events hacking, online frauds, duplicating are high.

But, the business with ISO 27001 certification which intend commit to protect the information and the compliance relate digital data, papers and the employee information.

ISO 27001 standard provides a systematic framework to effective security system and minimizing the risk of unknown users.ISO 27001 standards provide a structure for securing and managing information and relate to legal compliance, through this process which improves the performance of managing security information.

I am aware of what ISO 27001 is about, my question is what as a SQL DBA could I be doing to my database systems to align with my companies goals of achieving this certification?

How come you haven't mentioned disaster recovery strategy? That's pretty important IMHO.

We went through a similar exercise some months ago and I had to provide the IT manager with a full document of our Backup / restore process, (on-site and off-site).

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

Yes, DR is very important, but not the topic of this thread.
I'm focusing on ISO 27001 standards which focus on information security.
For the moment, MS SQL Security best practices is what I'm guided by.
