How to Protect SQL Server from Hackers and Penetration Tests

Webinar: Advanced Dynamic Search Queries and How to Protect Them

First of all, I must apologize for the long hiatus since my last published content.
I’ve been busy working on a lot of very different stuff, and unfortunately this delayed me from actually completing any one particular thing.

One thing that I did complete, though, was preparing and submitting a webinar for the PASS Global Hebrew Virtual Group.

The webinar is called “Advanced Dynamic Search Queries and How to Protect Them”, and I will be presenting it on Tuesday, April 30th 2019, 13:00 UTC (15:00 Israel Time).
