Before I even read the article, I'll say "all of it".

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Heh... and now that I've read the article, I'll say again... "All of it". ;-)

Edit: Nevermind. Did like Jeff and commented before reading and read protect as in backup up, not protect as in secure.

Easy to say all of it, but sometimes you need to make choices, especially with encryption. Doing the whole database can have a detrimental effect on performance.

Nope... didn't mean encrypt it all... limit access. BUT... I was mostly referring to personal information... that MUST be protected. To use your example about birthdates... why would any "casual" user need someone's birthdate? The answer is almost always "never".

The point of the data about birthdate and Zip code isn't that knowing those allows someone to figure out who you are, it's that those data are adequate to operate as a PK for people in most circumstances.

If you really want to see how much is already available about you out there, take a look at http:\\snitch.name. It's pretty darn easy to find out data about someone on there. It's not really paranoia to assume that everything about you is already known.

Privacy is an illusion. The difference between now and 100 years ago is that now it's cheaper and easier to find out someone's facts. That's all.

Hey, I came up first on Snitch! That doesn't happen often. Usually Steve Jones starts with the muscian, golfer, professor or basketball player.

And here I was, assuming you were this multi-tallented shape-shifter born on different days in different years. :-)
