Customer Bank Account Info

  • 1.  Customer Bank Account Info

    Posted 14 days ago
    Hi. Can anyone provide info on how customer bank account info is stored in D365 F&O for lockbox and direct debit? We're getting some concerning questions from our compliance team. Wondering how anyone here has addressed the issue of keeping this data encrypted when it's at rest. Appreciate any feedback here or direction on where to obtain more info about it. Thanks Ross

    Ross,

    Are you asking how the data is encrypted once stored in the D365FO database? Because D365FO uses Azure SQL it gets to utilize a lot of that functionality, including Transparent Data Encryption (TDE). Which means that data is encrypted on the way into the database, is encrypted while the data is at rest, and then decrypted on the fly when accessed. This is all transparent to the user. By default, the key for this is generated by Microsoft but you can also bring your own key if needed.

    Here are some links about this feature:

    Here is a snippet of the article:
