Data security in analytics and data warehousing.

Data security has become very important. Especially in the field of analytics and data warehousing. On the one hand, the relocation of numerous applications and data from on-premises systems to a cloud has raised awareness of questions of data storage and protection against unauthorized access. On the other hand, legal requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union have issued legal regulations that specify detailed requirements for rules to be observed.
