Encryption and RTBF Policy

You need to create a policy with a mapping for the Right To Be Forgotten (RTBF) scheme.

The RTBF policy hides sensitive information such as user name and moves it into the quarantine folder. It scans for HDFS, S3, and ADLS applications and accepts .csv, .parquet, .orc, and .avro file formats.
