Online Building an Auditing Framework for SQL Server

Do you know what security changed on your SQL Servers from yesterday to today? What about two days, two weeks, or two months ago? If you were called to answer an audit, would you be prepared?

In this webinar we'll look at how you can build an auditing framework to provide answers to these questions. We'll cover developing the data structures you'll need to produce reports about changes and who had access to what, at least as far as SQL Server is concerned. Then we'll review what kind of automation you will need to put into place as well as how often you should run your data collection in order to be able to provide the details you'll be asked for.
