by Rudi Bruchez

Learn how to secure SQL Server: Access, authentication, permissions, SQL injections, encryption and much more.

What you'll learn

Security in SQL Server is often overlooked. Companies tend to concentrate on availability and performance, but a database system often stores virtually all of a company's valuable and confidential data. So what happens if this data is stolen? In this course, we will cover all areas you need to protect to effectively secure SQL Server. It means system and network protection, user authentication, permissions on the objects and data, and data encryption. We will also use some penetration testing frameworks to show you how attacks are performed against SQL Server through various types of exploits, including SQL injection. The course is focused on SQL Server 2012 and 2014, but most of the information applies to all versions from SQL Server 2005 onward.
