I recently got this question sent to me by an HR Expert subscriber:
"Our VP is asking if there is any way to encrypt the Social Security and bank account number fields in HCM and ECC?
I have found several ways to restrict viewing of the fields by hiding the fields for certain users. I've found information about how to restrict information in the headers, but nothing about encryption or masking. My searches for an SAP note on the subject came up empty.
Do you know if SAP provides any kind of masking or encrypting capabilities? Do you have any information about how to encrypt HCM data?"
If anyone has an answer to this question, or any information that might be helpful, please post it.
Thanks so much!
