CompTIA Security+ Question I-87

Which of the following types of data encryption would Matt, a security administrator, use to encrypt a specific table?

A. Full disk
B. Individual files
C. Database
D. Removable media

Answer: C

A table is stored in a database. Database encryption makes use of cryptography functions that are built into the database software to encrypt the data stored in the database. This often offers granular encryption options which allows for the encryptions of the entire database, specific database tables, or specific database fields, such as a credit card number field.
