Both my wife and I will be speaking this weekend at SQLSaturday Dallas, back-to-back in room 1.102, and both on topics perfect for entry level IT pros, job seekers, and students. We're honored to be on a SQLSaturday schedule filled with some of the biggest names in the industry, so I hope to see you there! Looking forward to seeing so many #SQLFamily there again.
I'll be presenting on SQL Security Principals and Permissions 101, a ground-level introduction to SQL Server authentication, security principals and even some security principles. We'll go through some code demos about how stored procedures assist the DBA by abstracting the permissions necessary for execution, and how you could design a database security model using role-based, least-permissions pattern. I think everyone can learn something from this session, from DBA's to developers, and how better to secure their databases.
