SQL Server And STIGs

Mohammad Darab has a quick summary of the Department of Defense’s STIG overview for SQL Server 2016:

If you want to read through the whole document you can download it here. Otherwise, below is my summation of the relevant sections.

This overview document was developed by both Microsoft and DISA for the Department of Defense.

The entire overview document is 9 pages (including title page, etc.)
