GDPR – Hiding Your Sensitive Data – 5409

A discussion on how to find sensitive data and ensure that it is hidden from view – just in case there’s a data leak in non-production.
With GDPR imminent on 25th May 2018, we assume that everyone has now locked down all of their sensitive data in order to avoid the potentially very large fines for non-compliance. In this discussion I’ll talk about how virtualising your databases can help with masking (or should I say Psuedonymising) sensitive data and more importantly how you can use some techniques to locate the sensitive data in the first place. All part of being a good custodian of your customers’ precious data.
