Featured speaker sneak peek

Learn about protecting your data (Security in SQL Server) with Uwe Ricken 

He earned the “Microsoft Certified Master – SQL Server 2008” certification and he received an MVP award for his outstanding support to the Microsoft SQL Server Community in Germany and Europe. He was the first ever MCM + MVP in Germany.This workshop, filled to the brim with hands-on demos and exercises, will guide you through most aspects of security features in SQL Server.

Uwe will provide you with a myriad of tips & tricks, configuration best practices, and most likely a number of entertaining anecdotes based on his many years in the field.
