Featured Presentation:

SQL 2016 Always Encrypted

Todd Kleinhans, Sr SQL DBA BAE Applied Intelligence

SQL Server 2016 introduces a new feature called Always Encrypted. This feature can persist encrypted data and offloads the encrypt/decrypt operations exclusively on the client. Always Encrypted can also be used with whole database encryption (TDE). In this presentation, Todd will talk about what Always Encrypted is, how it is different from the encryption options currently available and will provide a demo.
