Protecting data from unauthorized access becomes more important all the time. SQL Server includes a number of features that help make data protection and security easier for developers and DBAs with a framework for protecting data. This session will help you learn how Always Encrypted, TDE, Row Level Security, Dynamic Data Masking, and column level encryption can protect your systems.

You will learn:
