Is Entity-Level Encryption The Answer to Exfiltration Ransomware? (Restore it All Podcast #119)

Brian Greenberg and Cameron Laghaeian argue the point that individually encrypting each entity in a database storing personal information is the only true way to stop ransomware attacks that have exfiltrated data and threaten to release it. While Mr. Backup likes the idea, there was a pretty heated discussion on this episode, because he believes that doing this will roll back all advancements in backup in the last twenty years. Thanks to an olive branch from Cameron, though, they may have come to a hybrid solution that makes both sides happy. This is a great episode with heated discussion and good news for companies trying to protect themselves from ransomware attacks that include exfiltration of data.
