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.
