Featured Presentation

Tom Norman Presents Encrypting Data within SQL Server

Speaker: Thomas Norman, Database Architect KPA

Summary: Data breaches abound! Do you want to keep off of the data breach list? What are some of the data privacy laws affecting you? How will encrypting data affect your database performance? What data fields should you encrypt? What else can you do to protect your sensitive data? In this session, we will review each option to encrypt data within SQL Server, Transparent Data Encryption, Cell Level Encryption and Always Encrypted. The session will deep dive into setting up Always Encrypted encryption and share my experiences implementing the encryption. You will leave the session with a deeper understanding of SQL Server encryption options and how encryption can affect your performance. In addition, you will gather information on how to fully protect your sensitive data usage. Prerequisites: Have an understanding that data privacy is required and a desire to learn how to protect data you have been trusted with.
