Workshop # 6: Masking Policies

Date: 12/01/2024 @ 11:30 SAST.

Overview: Sharing data allows for easy access to the data by different members of an organisation and sometimes members outside the organisation.

Column-level security can be used to hide or maintain the anonymity of data for a given audience. Join us as we dive deeper into this useful feature.
