5 dages virtuelt kursus

Virtual Masterclass: Hacking and Securing SQL Server

Vi starter med at identificere sikerhedsbehov vedrørende databaseservere og kigger på de mest almindelige angrebstyper og bruge dem på 'out of the box' installationen. På kurset analysere, lærer og praktiserer du kritiske opgaver til implementering på et highly secure SQL Server infrastruktur. Meget enkelt, vi vil hacke vores egne systemer! Undervisningen foregår på engelsk.

Form virtual delivery

Before you participate on a virtual course, we always try to arrange a 15-20 minute test session with the participants a week before to make sure that everyone is capable to attend the Masterclass. Below you will find the technical requirements for connecting to the virtual training:
  • A computer with a stable internet connection (preferably Windows or Mac OS)
  • Permissions for outgoing RDP connections to external servers (to our lab environment) – port 3389
  • A headset (headphones + microphone)
  • Webcam (built-in or plug-in)
  • Additional monitor will be helpful but it’s not required

This course is a must-go for database administrators, IT professionals and security officers dealing with database servers.

Then we will discuss impact of system and network security on databases server. Next we will go through every layer of protection offered by SQL Server with lots of real life examples and hands on labs. At the end we will look at the monitoring and auditing our infrastructure to detect threats and react to them. Additionally we’ll play with security of other SQL Services and Azure SQL Databases. Our goal is to show and teach you how to protect your precious data in SQL Server environment and how database security mechanisms work.


To attend this training you should have good hands-on experience in administering Microsoft SQL Server infrastructure. At least 5 years in the field is recommended.


Database administrators, infrastructure architects, security professionals, system engineers, advanced database developer, IT professionals, security consultants and other people responsible for implementing databases security.


After the course you will be able to test and secure your SQL Server infrastructure. And to get more practice we offer three extra weeks of labs online! We want you to leave the class with scripts, checklists and practical, ready-to-use knowledge of how to hack, test and secure your SQL Server infrastructure.
