Presented by Karen Lopez, Senior Project Manager and Architect at InfoAdvisors


Modern database systems have introduced more support for security, privacy and compliance over the last few years. We expect this to increase as compliance issues such as GDPR and other data compliance challenges arise.

In this session, Karen will be discussing the newer features from a database designers points of view, including:

  • Data Masking
  • End-to-end Encryption
  • Row Level Security
  • New Data Types
  • Data Categorization and Classification

We'll look at the new features, why you should consider them, where they work, where they don't, who needs to be involved in using them, and what changes, if any, need to be made to applications or tools that you support.
