SQL Server 2008 R2 Security Benchmark Released


The Center for Internet Security (CIS) Security Benchmarks Division released “CIS Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Database Engine Benchmark V1.0.0” on November 16, 2012. The best I can tell, this benchmark can also be used with SQL Server 2008.

CISSQL2008R2This is a consensus-based development of security best practices which have become the de facto security configuration standards.  If you are in charge of your SQL Server security configuration, you need a copy of this document – it is what your auditors will be using soon!
