Is There Interest in SQL Server Security Pre-Cons?

2013/10/30

I’m very passionate about security, especially database security. As the numbers with regards to data breaches continue to climb, this is become even more important to me. I’ve been affected personally by data breaches, as have many others. For instance, I’ve had to change out my credit cards due to payment processor breaches, I was affected by the South Carolina Department of Revenue breach, and I’m sure there are others, maybe ones that weren’t reported, that I was affected by as well. I enjoy speaking on security, but a 45-75 minute session barely scratches the surface when it comes to any security topic. I’d love to spend more time covering more information, diving down into more details, etc., for those wanting to learn. The best way to do that is probably through a pre-con at a SQL Saturday. I’ve given half day and full day sessions before, primarily to IT auditors, and I’m thinking the same sort of time length is appropriate to convey enough information to make it worth paying for. Here’s a sample agenda from one of my half day courses to give you an idea of what I’m thinking about (this is from a SQL 2000-2008R2 class):

If you think you’d be interested in such a pre-con, especially if you’re a SQL Saturday organizer, comment on this post or, better, send me an email at brian {dot} kelley {at} sqlpass {dot} org (note the spelling on the last name as kelly will cause it to bounce).
