Column-Level Database Encryption

It is a type of database encryption that selects specific attributes/data elements to be encrypted instead of the entire database or individual records. This type of encryption is generally implemented using algorithms like Triple Data Encryption Standard (TripleDES) or Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). This encryption benefits confidential or sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), credit card information, or health records. In case of any data breach, the encrypted data will be safe, and the cyber threat actor won’t be able to read or use that data for fraudulent activities.
