What roles for ROLES?

By Mark W. Kaelin Editor ·
Koconnor?s question in the TechRepublic Discussion Center applies to Builder too.

Keeping privileged users out of specific areas of data can be quite a hot topic. For data stored INSIDE a database, ROLES can play an important part in keeping people from accessing data they should not be seeing. This can include the DBA themselves!

While signed policies are never a bad idea, it is better to prevent the problem in the first place by denying access unless needed. Now would be a good time to review Susan Harkins? article on Understanding Roles in SQL Server.

Koconnor asks: Does anyone have a policy statement for IT staff that tells IT staff about how it can and cannot make access data it is entrusted with?
