MSSQLTips: Tip #51 – Alerts and Notifications for SQL Server Login, Database User and Role Membership Changes

Featured

SQL Server security monitoring is a critical part of the Database Administrator’s job. Some security related alerts could be setup very easy, but others require third-party tools or extra steps to setup.
