in thread Cryptology in the database

I find the idea of not storing sensitive data unless it's absolutely necessary particularly interesting.

It's a very good one.

Unfortunately it's often an uphill batle to get acceptance for not storing a lot of 'nice to have' data that's not really neccesary to keep and that greatly increase the complexity of the application.

Beeing able to conjure som estimates on the cost (not just economic) of adding each table/field sell better with management than just complaining though. Remember to apply π2 to your first idea when you think of a number. Add prime time news headlines to the picture when it's security related.

    Possibly the ugliest example so far is the TJX data breach (45.6M card numbers stolen). Then there's the UK HM Revenue and Customs lost computer disks (25M confidential child benefit details lost). The list grows quickly.

[Discipulus]: focus on Perl LA; you can already search multiline patterns
[erix]: grep is a program, not a regex-engine
[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm 20 years in, and I don't want to move ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
