Past sessions

Data protection requires a balance between encryption and analytics. Encrypted data is protected but limits its value. In the session we will provide a variety of practical methods that enable to encrypt the data (as required for HIPAA, CCPA, PCI and data cross border controls) - yet maintaining its analytics power. These methods include encryption at-rest and in-use, dynamic masking, selective value searches of encrypted columns and column/row level filtering (for 'Right of erasure'.)
