A long, long time ago—in the early 90s—I first worked as a DBA with responsibility for enterprise databases. I will never forget how surprised and disappointed I was to discover that the data in the database files were completely unencrypted.  A system administrator with access to the database files could read the data in those files, even if they didn't have a database username and password.

Across database structures, dates are ubiquitous: sales date; order date; shipment date; receipt date; created date; last updated date.
