Context: After applying Sensitive Data Encapsulation, all sensitive data is gathered in a known place in the database. This makes it possible to apply further protection best practices.
Problem: If any non-authorized actor manages to get access to a copy of the database, the sensitive data is immediately available in clear-text.
- Accessibility: anyone who managed to steal a copy of the database can at once read the sensitive information.
Solution: Encrypt sensitive data. Dynamics NAV offers a simple mechanism for data encryption, to be used by NAV developers.
