Last week, in my previous article on How to Secure SQL Server I have discussed a few points that can help you secure SQL Server. In this post, as promised I will share a SQL Server Security Checklist that I have used for many of my clients to help them achieve PCI compliance.
As you are aware, PCI is global payment security standard council. Following their standards help an organization achieve a compliance certificate that all the card data that is processed, store and transmit are maintained in secure environment.
Here is the checklist as I have promised in my previous article. Please do let me know if you find something is missing and you want me to add it to the check list.
