Scaling data security encryption
This workshop is all about overcoming the challenges around scaling encryption. The hands-on workshop will explore the scaling complexities of encryption and key management, the gotchas of getting started with encryption by using a single key, how to scale data security across applications, and the challenges of rotating encryption keys. Attendees will build a solution using an open-source SDK that will take them through setting up a KMS, creating an application and adding the Basis Theory’s open-source SD, and encrypting and decrypting a text value.
