‘Anonymisation and open data: an introduction to managing the risk of re-identification’ discusses the risks and opportunities around open data, personal data and anonymisation.

The report follows the recent implementation of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018. It is one of the most comprehensive pieces of regulation yet to deal with personal data, and is changing the way organisations collect and use data.

GDPR is just one part of a growing trend towards people exercising more control over data about them, and protecting their privacy in a data-hungry world.

We hope that this report will provide organisations with a better understanding of data anonymisation as a framework for risk management, and how responsible data management can increase access to data while retaining trust.
