SQL Server 2012 Security Benchmark Released


The Center for Internet Security (CIS) Security Benchmarks Division released “CIS Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Database Engine Benchmark V1.0.0” on January 6, 2014. 

CIS_SQL2012_Benchmark_V1This 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! 

I am currently serving as one of the editors for the SQL Server benchmarks. We are in progress with updating the SQL Server 2008 R2 benchmark previously released in late 2012.  If you discover any items we should update\add\delete in that document or in the newly released 2012 benchmark, please either leave a comment here on my blog or better yet join the benchmark community consensus team (http://benchmarks.cisecurity.org/community)!
