In this purely demo-based session, I will show several real-life attacks, from mere reading up to disrupting service availability via various types of manual and automated SQL Injection, including a broadly unknown elevation of privileges attack.
Extended Events are replacing the old SQL Trace & Profiler, and there are many good reasons for that. In this session I want to demonstrate to you some of the best features and possibilities of this Tracing Framework.
Security is one of the top topics for the new release of SQL Server. A total of 3 completely new features are coming to us: Always Encrypted, Dynamic Data Masking and Row Level Security.
