Security is not a feature

You should not have to wait for a spefic feauture to be secure. A lot of the security features are not limited to the latest versions. Let's go back in time and match modern day security features in a SQL version from way back when.
In todays always connected, hybrid workplace, and cloud driven world security it top of mind. As a SQL Server user a range of security features are available to you. And every version or edition might come with new security features. But the security of your data is too important to rely on features. The good news is it doesn't have to be. In this session I am going to take you back in time when SQL server only came in 32-bits and show that it can match the security features introduced in the latest versions.
