Baltimore SQL Server Users Group 5/4

Last night at the Frederick .NET user group Jeremy Kadlec of Edgewood Solutions (one of the founders of the Baltimore SQL Server Users group, was a speaker.  I didn’t realize that this group met so close to where I work here in Columbia.  After checking out the website I was excited to learn that they met on the first Monday of the month.  Tuesdays and Thursdays, which seem to be popular days for most of the other user groups in the area are not an option for me since I handle the kids those nights while my wife tutors.

So, I’ll be checking out the group for the first time on Monday May 4th.

Presenter: Jack Richins of Microsoft

Title – SQL Server 2008 Security

With increased concerns about privacy and data thefts, security remains a “must have” business feature even with constrained budgets. Come learn how to use these features to better secure your database applications and met business compliance regulations.

Learn how to:
* Protect your data at rest
* Use 3rd party key management systems to encrypt data in SQL Server with keys stored outside of SQL Server
* Keep an audit record of access to sensitive data without tanking your performance
