Title: Compliance & The DBA

Abstract: With data systems getting larger and more data, both business & personal, being stored compliance is becoming serious concern and overhead for many businesses. In this session we will look at just what compliance is, focusing on the UK Data Protection Act, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard & Sarbanes-Oxley which are the big three of the compliance world. Covering at a high level, what they are, why they exist and the types of things that they require. Then I will cover a number of techniquies and options for SQL Server to help you meet these requirements. The outcome of this will be that you can look at your systems in a new light when it comes to design and maintenance.

Bio: John is a SQL Sever developer & DBA, working with SQL Server since 2007 in a range of environments ranging from defense to manufacturing & retail. All of which have had strignent security requirements for their data systems that include not only regulatory compliance but also availability and recoverability requirements.
