I am preparing for my first SQL Saturday talk and would welcome any suggestions for the abstract.

SQL Security: Five Backdoors You Rarely Check

How secure is your SQL Server environment? If you are like the rest of us, your environment is not as secure as you think. When is the last time you checked if your backups were stored in a secure location? Are your passwords in development the same as production? Do you use the same account to run all of your SQL Server instances? In this talk I will highlight common mistakes that many companies make. I will go over some best practices for storing your SQL Server backups, setting up linked servers, and configuring SQL Server service accounts. You will also learn how to spot an account used by multiple users, and audit weak passwords.

Session Level: Intermediate

Thanks!

Looks pretty good. I like the approach of defining the problem space and then talking about how you'll present solutions to that problem space. I'd say it needs one more sentence that sort of wraps up what they'll be taking home and how wonderful their lives will be after they attend your session. Other than that, it's better than at least half the sessions I just reviewed for the PASS Summit.

Well that is always assuring to hear. Thanks for the advice Grant and I will see if I can come up with a good closing line. I hope to run into again at a SQL Saturday event soon - you going to SQL Saturday Albany or Maine?

Yeah, I've applied to Maine, but no word on if I got picked. I'm doing a pre-con at Albany, so I'm pretty sure I'm picked there. See you at both!
