I want to congratulate Brian Moran on re-starting the Northern Virginia SQL Server Users Group. The first meeting was originally scheduled for January, but was cancelled because of the snow. So the first meeting is this coming Monday at AT&T in Tyson's Corner, formerly the GRC building.

Jeremy Kadlec from Edgewood Solutions will talk about auditing requirements and how they affect enterprise DBAs. You'll learn about best practices that will make your life easier when dealing with audits. The bottom line is that security and auditability is everyone's job in IT these days, especially with new reporting and certification requirements like HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley. This is an area that can cause serious damage to the career if you get it wrong, so pay attention!

If you want to be sure there's enough pizza, RSVP to Brian.
