I'll be speaking at SQL Saturday #298 in Jacksonville, FL on May 10, 2014.
If you work in an organization that is finding it increasingly difficult to allow SQL Server DBAs 24x7x365 sysadmin access to your Production servers, then I think you will find my session "SQL Server Security Easy Button" very interesting.
Attendees will learn how to define a permission set with a single script that allows database administrators to do routine work without sysadmin permission and how to elevate permissions quickly to respond to production emergencies.
Attendees will leave this session with a complete script that provides the minimum necessary access database administrators require to maintain the database server without granting access to business data.
In addition, I’ll talk about our real world experience with reduced permissions.
Hope to see you there!
