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

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).

It takes a minimal capacity for rational thought to see that the corporate 'free press' is a structurally irrational and biased, and extremely violent, system of elite propaganda.

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.
