With SQL injection attacks on the rise, it is imperative to configure Microsoft SQL Server with least privilege. In this webcast, we provide an overview on how to configure a SQL Server installation with least privilege for a typical line-of-business application. We cover configuring least-privileged service accounts for SQL Server services, best practices for configuring least-privileged principals used by the front-end or middle tiers to connect to the SQL Server back end, and the details of configuring SQL Server job steps with least privilege.
