comment When a sysadmin leaves what extra precautions need to be taken?
@seedy: it is a policy. As such it has to be followed. Just like a law. It is against the law to kill people, but is still possible (and pretty easy).

comment When a sysadmin leaves what extra precautions need to be taken?
Is this question about a best practice to avoid this problem under normal circumstances or are you asking what to do now that you have fired an admin who had access to everything and you suspect that he is pissed off and will attack your company?

revised When a sysadmin leaves what extra precautions need to be taken?
Added clarification about this only working if admins actually follow the policy before turning evil.

comment What is the right way of storing database connection strings from the security point of view?
Most answers here assume the presence of Windows, SQL Server and ASP.NET. Since (at least) the OP doesn't mention any particular deployment environment it would be good with some answers regarding things like Linux+Apache+MySQL+PHP as well.

"things you should never do": haha, sounds like about every open source PHP project I've ever seen. But on a more serious note, what would you do if it is an interpreted language that has to have access to the credentials to be able to connect to the DB?
