SQLPASS Auditing & Compliance SIG LiveMeeting

Today, the Auditing & Compliance SIG had our first live meeting event. We held a presentation about Sarbanes-Oxley and the DBA.

Many different topics were presented, with possible solutions provided.
We discussed ways to remedaite the following topics, and how to provide auditable documentation for auditors.

Change Management
Division of duties
Backup and Recovery
Data Structure Changes
Back End Database User Access
Database Authentication & Access
Job Monitoring
Data Monitoring Controls
Data Transfer
Physical Access

I felt like it went well, and hopefully helped folks out with their concerns and needs with this topic. A few people asked for the slides or the recording. I hope that it got recorded, but in the short term i have posted the slides here.

When I find out about the recording, I'll post it somewhere we can get to it.

I hope that this is the first of many events that will help us DBA's with Auditing & Compliance.
