Last week, we had the pleasure of attending TechDays 2014 in The Hague in the Netherlands.

Talking of the booth, we went for an extremely high tech look with the whole of the backdrop backlit. It was stunning but made
for some challenging photography, let me tell you. Attendees were very interested in what we had to say and show, especially with Don there to talk Dutch.

This covers a large percentage of the security requirements that most people have. But neither technology has great support for vertical or column based security. This sort of requirement is most common in privacy scenarios. One example of this would be a model with
medical data. It may be acceptable to show all your users demographic data such as the state they live in or their gender.
