    There was quite a hoo haa not long ago about sharepoint and sims security, because it gave a window into the school, effectively removing that physical factor of needing to get to a machine on site with software installed and linked to the server.

    In fact, that's a consideration for anyone opting for cloud / web based solutions. If someone hacks your email OWA access you could live with it, but if someone now gets into your DB and looks up kids photos and phone numbers, it's a whole heap of trouble you don't wanna deal with.

    Don't get why you would want to encrypt the database... are you planning on taking your server on holiday?
    @vikpaw - you can purchase third party add-ons to do two factor authentication for SLG and OWA, pretty sure a few LAs already do this.

    Hi Vik No plan for taking on holidays :-)

    But worse case if your network security compromised minimum your confidential information is secure.
