Data policies and standards help to ensure a repeatable security standard is maintained. In this course, you'll learn about data encryption scenarios and best practices. You'll explore how Azure Transparent Database Encryption and Always Encrypted can be used to ensure data at rest is protected. Next, you'll examine how data classification and data masking can protect data being viewed. You'll learn to configure data retention and purging to ensure data is retained or removed. You'll also explore the various means of controlling access to Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2. Finally, you'll learn how to plan a data auditing strategy and how to limit access to data at the row level in a database. This course is one in a collection that prepares learners for the Microsoft Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure (DP-203) exam.
