Part of what defines a modern cloud engineer’s role is privacy concerns. Between the GDPR and the various US states' attempts to govern PII, it has become more and more important that we understand how to secure data. In this hands-on lab, students will employ one of the most important and common "data at rest" protection mechanisms: Always Encrypted SQL data. We will build a SQL Server and populate a database with sample data, then connect and encrypt a targeted portion of that data.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
