SQL Server 2005 Compliance Assessments

January 25, 2008

Pinal Dave (www.sqlauthority.com) has posted some of the assessment configuration packs intended to help you establish and validate a desired configuration for your SQL 2005 servers in order to support specific compliance directives:

1. Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) – GLBA compliance is mandatory; whether a financial institution discloses nonpublic information or not, there must be a policy in place to protect the information from foreseeable threats in security and data integrity”

2. Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) – “Debate continues over the perceived benefits and costs of SOX. Supporters contend that the legislation was necessary and has played a useful role in restoring public confidence in the nation’s capital markets by, among other things, strengthening corporate accounting controls. Detractors contend that SOX was an unnecessary and costly government intrusion into corporate management that places U.S. corporations at a competitive disadvantage vis-a-vis foreign firms.”

3. Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) – “FISMA imposes a mandatory set of processes that must be followed for all information systems used or operated by a US Government federal agency or by a contractor or other organization on behalf of a US Government agency. “

4. European Union Data Protection Directive (EUDPD) “This configuration pack contains configuration items intended to help you establish and validate a desired configuration for your SQL 2005 servers in order to support your European Union Data Protection Directive compliance efforts.”

5. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) – “The enactment of the Privacy and Security Rules has caused major changes in the way physicians and medical centers operate. While respect for patient privacy was already informally considered a cornerstone of medical professionalism, the complex legalities and potentially stiff penalties associated with HIPAA, as well as the increase in paperwork and the cost of its implementation, were causes for concern among physicians and medical centers.”
