Ensuring sensitive data is protected properly is a fundamental of any data system. In this session, we dive into ledger tables, which ensures that if data is tampered, it can be identified and remediated quickly. We will then discuss Always Encrypted with secure enclaves, which provides encryption-in-use, allowing you data to stay encrypted, regardless of its state.

You will learn:

  • The importance of protecting sensitive data
  • How ledger tables provide many of the benefits of a blockchain, without the complexity
  • How Always Encrypted with secure enclaves can ensure sensitive data is protected - even in use!
