much funds are being directed the security implementations.Next up on the security checklist for an SQL Server is the operating system security (OS Security). This is important because even if the server is in the most secure location, if the OS is vulnerable, anyone can remote in and gather information. Making sure the system has all of the updates, patches and security implementations can prove to maximize the security of the server. Another step would be to allow administrator privileges only to those who serve a role in securing and maintaining the server. If anyone is allowed those privileges, they can change important settings which can cause huge risks and breaches.During the server installation comes a huge part in the process. Only installing components that are required for server operations is crucial to the effectiveness of the policies
enforced. Additional roles that will not serve a purpose can lead to vulnerabilities and mismanagement.
