The mission of the Security Virtual Chapter is to provide guidance and education, and to foster open discussion on security topics as they pertain to SQL Server and its environment.

Welcome to the PASS Security Virtual Chapter

Security is hard, and is hardly convenient - yet in today's world, it becomes absolutely necessary. Security touches upon infrastructure, code, and even things in the "physical" world. It is much more than Administration and Development.

The Security Virtual Chapter will cover the following topics and much more:
- SQL Server surface area and Attack vectors (SQL injection, etc)
- Encryption
- Security standards and best practices
- Forensics
- Audits and regulatory compliance
- Authentication and authorization
