T-SQL Tuesday: Encryption and Data Protection

I have the honour of hosting this month’s T-SQL Tuesday. In case there’s any doubt that’s for October 2023, I’m posting this invitation a little early as I got my dates clashed and I’ll be on holiday in Majorca next week!

For those of you who don’t know, T-SQL Tuesday is a monthly blog party where pople are invited to blog on a chosen subject related to SQL Server. You’re invited to join in whether you’re an experienced blogger, or have never blogged before. It’s a nice way to get started writing with a ready audience who’ll view your post.

Any of you who know me will know I have a keen interest in SQL Server Encryption and Data Protection so that’s the topic for this month’s blog party.

Any contributions relating to that topic are most welcome, and treat it as you see fit. Maybe you have a technical detail or discovery you want to share. Maybe you have a useful “how to”. Equally welcome are stories about encryption gone wrong – or incidents where data wasn’t protected sufficiently, and bad things happened. Or stories with a happy ending. It’s a deliberately wide topic, and I’d love a wide variety of contributions.

Whatever it is that comes to mind, I’d love your input and to hear your stories. I’ll review all the posts and aim to produce a roundup by the following Tuesday.

The usual rules apply:

  • Publish your post on Tuesday 10th October, or close enough that it can be vaguely jusified as happening on that date in a time zone somewhere.
  • Include the T-SQL Tuesday logo at the top of your post and link it back to this invitation. I should get a pingback so I know you’ve posted – but it’s worthwhile sharing me the link in the comments to this post too so I definitely don’t miss it.
  • If you’re on Twitter (I refuse to call it X), tweet your post using #tsql2sday
  • Have fun!
