In SQL Server 2016 Advanced Security and Administration, we go beyond the basics of managing and securing a SQL Server instance. This course will look at the complex world of encryption and how you can enable this to protect data at rest as well as inside the database. Learn about Always Encrypted, where the data is always protected outside of the client system. The course will show how Dynamic Data Masking and Row-Level Security can be used to ensure that your clients only view the data they should be allowed to view. Since performance is important to all clients, the course covers the ways in which an administrator can determine what activity is taking place on a database through Extended Events and how to analyse and improve performance of queries using execution plans and the Query Store.
In the end you will learn how to ensure predictable performance by analysing activity to find any performance problem, use detailed execution plans to tune query code, and use Query Store to prevent plan regressions.
This course will consist of explanations of each feature along with demonstrations that enable the viewer to understand how to use each feature.
What You Will Learn ? Learn to enable and administer Always Encrypted to secure data on the network and inside the database. ? Use Row-Level Security to selectively limit access to data by user. ? Configure Dynamic Data Masking to obfuscate data consistently in your applications. ? Enable encryption to protect data stored in SQL Server. ? Create Extended Event sessions that capture the activity on your database ? Analyze activity on your system to troubleshoot issues your clients experience. ? Capture query execution plans to understand how the application is performing ? Learn to read plans and tune the system based on the data clients need. ? Enable the Query Store to track query activity over time ? Force query plans with the Query Store that can help ensure predictable performance.
