The UK government have taken the decision to enter into Tier 5. Yesterday evening saw the announcement in the UK of Covid-19 Lockdown 3.0. This decision was taken with a view to continuing to protect our NHS and also millions of vulnerable people.
The news of this decision is a shock and has had an impact on many lives. In an attempt to remain optimistic I wanted to use it as an opportunity to look to the future and how we apply similar protection within Power BI.
To do this I fast forwarded to the forthcoming February release of Power BI. Within the imminent release, is a feature that will enhance the protectection of sensitive business data within Power BI.
Power BI Object-level Security
Introducing the highly anticipated Object-level security (OLS) feature (preview). The purpose of Object-level security is to restrict access to sensitive tables and columns. Sensitive data includes personally identifiable information (PII). In addition to the data in the secured tables/columns, the metadata is also secured to help prevent a malicious user from discovering that such an object exists.
Object-level security comes as part of the huge strides forward that the MSFT team have made over the past year. Developing Power BI into a true flagship enterprise level Analysis Services replacement.
