Featured Presentation

Hide Sensitive Data with Dynamic Data Masking

Speaker: Faheem Ismat, Lead DBA Marathon Oil

Summary: Dynamic Data Masking is a new feature in SQL Server 2016 which can be deployed as part of overall data security strategy. Dynamic Data Masking is not intended to be used as a primary security solution but it enhances data security by limiting sensitive data exposure to non-privileged users. This new policy-based security feature allows DBAs and Developers to limit access of sensitive data, with a minimal impact to the application layer. Implementing a Dynamic Data Masking solution can not only raise level of security and privacy assurance of sensitive data but also it helps to achieve compliance requirements with various security and privacy standards.

About Faheem: Faheem Ismat, PMP and Microsoft certified IT professional, working as Lead DBA at Marathon Oil. He has worked as Sr. Software Engineer, Data Integration Lead and Sr. DBA in ADP, Alcon, Allegro and Logix. He is a multi-platform DBA (SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, ...) and got expertise in application and data integration, HA/DR, performance tuning, migration/consolidation and securing data in rest and transit states. His past presentations at SQL Saturday and HASSUG were focused on SQL Server data security features (data masking and encryption), usage of Service Broker for live data transfer across different domains (on-premise and cloud).
