How do you handle PII in Master Data Services? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • What are the best practices for handling PII, such as ssn, credit card, address, phone number, etc., in MDS? Has anyone had to implement PII in Master Data Services? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • I would second Gerald's question.  While I would not want to store credit card details. Attributes like SSN, address, or phone number would be of interest if anyone has faced this issue.   For example, is there an ability to use SQL Encryption for an attribute or is the best solution to create proxy values for attributes like SSN.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

  • MDS does not support column/attribute encryption yet. And WebUI/Excel Addin UI does not support application level encryption as well.
    The only option is write a custom application to encrypt/decrypt at application level, when save/read it from MDS.
