Data Encryption for CRM Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that needs the additional of several customer fields.

    I need to encrypt several of these fields (medical records).

    I am somewhat confused / uncertain after reading several articles on CRM data encryption.

    • I know that SQL Server supports TDE.
    • I know that data encryption is enabled with CRM Online.
    • I understand that CRM automatically encrypts certain sensitive data types mainly to do with server side synchronisation

    What I cannot find out is: - 

    1. Does CRM Online 2016 support encryption of custom fields? and
    2. How doe I enable data encryption for custom fields?

    Can you help me?

  • CRM Doesnt have any data encryption functionality for fields, this can be achieved by plugins if you are aware of how to develop a plugin. But for the mentioned purpose the Field Level security should be the best possible option.

  • Thanks for your input Guido.

    Your blog addresses field level security BUT NOT data encryption on custom fields.
