Overview

In 2016, 4.2 billion accounts were exposed in data breaches. This number represents a four-fold increase over the previous record high established in 2013. Most data breaches result from inadequate data security. Have you considered how well your BI development practices protect your data? That job is not limited to the DBA. Everyone who works with data needs to understand the risks and take the appropriate steps to ensure your organization’s data is adequately protected at all times.

The Microsoft BI stack contains multiple tools which each have different security configuration options and inter-dependencies. In this 2-day Level 300 training class, you see specifically how data can be compromised in this stack, learn where the potential risks of a data breach are lurking in your BI solutions, and leave with specific steps you can take to mitigate those risks.

This class starts with an overview of security principles. As the class progresses, we explore the anatomy of an attack on your data component by component. We review the security architecture of each component in the BI stack and highlight vulnerabilities in the architecture that must be addressed to properly secure your BI environment. Furthermore, we explore security by using a multi-tier, multi-layered approach, leaving no stone unturned.

By the end of this class, you’ll understand the relationship across the security settings not only in the BI tools, but also the back-end databases and the Windows operating system. As we examine potential security issues, we show you how to build a security action plan for Integration Services, Analysis Services, and Reporting Services. Is Azure in your environment? We also cover important aspects of cloud security for a BI solution. Come learn how to preserve and protect your data effectively from the inside out.

Target audience:

  • DBAs who need to understand and mitigate the security risks of the BI components in the data platform
  • BI architects and developers who need to confidently design and build secure BI solutions

Our general recommendation is for you to purchase tickets with departures no earlier than 8:00pm. However, each city/location may be a little different. Consider contacting the hotel (or the hotel’s website) for more specific insight into travel times and specific travel options to the airport.

Location details:

  • The Immersion Event will be held in the Hilton Suites Chicago/Oak Brook. We’ve held more than fifty Immersion Events here since 2011.
  • This hotel is 20 minutes from O’Hare airport and is near a large mall with many amenities.
  • The hotel has a special rate for our event, for a two-room suite, of US$134/night.
    • Please use the reservation link HERE to access the special rate.
  • RESERVE YOUR HOTEL NIGHTS EARLY: SQLskills has a LIMITED number of rooms reserved under our group rate and these usually sell out. Even if you’re waiting to officially register for the class – you might want to get your hotel room setup early (ASAP) to ensure that you get the discounted/group rate and that you’re at the hotel where the event is being held. Most importantly, the earlier you get your hotel reservations confirmed, the easier it is for us to add rooms to our block. Thanks so much for helping us out with this!

    • Wireless internet access for the entire stay.
    • Full breakfast on departure morning.
