“Data Security for the Cloud”: A New Pre-Con at SQLSaturday Chicago

More and more companies are considering a move to the cloud, but one aspect of such a migration that may be overlooked in the transition is the security of the data. In many cases, the cloud provider only handles a portion of the security, leaving you to handle the rest. So what, exactly, is your responsibility? And where do you start?

Ed will be teaching a new full-day session on this subject at SQLSaturday Chicago, hosted this year at a new venue in Lisle, IL, on March 16-17. Unfortunately, standard registration for Saturday’s conference is already full – but anyone attending a pre-conference session on Friday (like this one!) gets to jump the wait list and attend Saturday’s conference, also. Don’t want to learn about security? That’s fine… there are also pre-conference sessions by Aaron Nelson on Power BI; Cathrine Wilhelmsen on Biml and automating data warehouse frameworks; and Eddie Wuerch on performance tuning by analyzing waits.

Registration and full information for Ed’s session is available on the EventBrite event page. Information on the other pre-conference sessions can be found on the SQLSaturday Chicago home page.

The Biggest Risk to Your Security

Despite the overwhelming evidence that the risk and the financial consequences of cyber-attacks are enormous, we still hear, “Nobody is going to hack us…we don’t have anything they want,” or “We can’t get hacked because _____,” with the blank being things like “we use cloud applications” or “we have a good firewall,” “our people are too smart to click on bad links in e-mails,” or other similar “reasons” for their false sense of security. They explain it away.
