Conference Schedule - PGConf.EU 2019
Anonymization : GDPR and beyond
Time: 15:40 - 16:30
Since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, data masking and anonymization are now mandatory in many use case where data has to flow in various ways.
The good news is that you can use PostgreSQL to define and enforce an anonymization policy directly inside your database. Using an open source extension called "PostgreSQL Anonymizer", you can use various masking strategies such as randomization, faking, bluring, generalization, shuffling, partial masking, etc.
PostgreSQL Anonymizer is a simple and effective way to protect the privacy of your users and even go beyond the GDPR requirements.
