Encryption in SQL Server

A Step-by-Step Guide to Implementing Various Encryption Options in SQL Server 2019

Course Description

Welcome to Encryption in SQL Server 2019.

In this course you'll learn about the sundry approaches Microsoft uses to encrypt data.  Microsoft SQL Server supports 5 different kinds of encryption for protecting data.  While you'll learn about all of them the course will focus on the most recent and most often used approaches to encrypting your data.

In this course you implement two types of data encryption in SQL Server 2019 and one type that's not encryption but is a solid option for securing data.

They are:

  • Column Level Encryption

  • Transparent Level Encryption

  • Dynamic Data Masking

Encryption is the process of obfuscating data by the use of a key or password. This can make the data useless without the corresponding decryption key or password. Encryption does not solve access control problems. However, it enhances security by limiting data loss even if access controls are bypassed. You can use encryption in SQL Server for connections, data, and stored procedures.

Data protection is critical for ensuring that your organization is compliant with regulatory compliance standards like the GDPR and for meeting the expectations of your clients and business partners. Not only can data breaches result in large fines, but the reputational damage can be just as great.

One you've completed this course, you'll have a solid understanding of data encryption techniques in SQL Server.
