Anonymisation Decision-making Framework

Introducing the Anonymisation Decision-making Framework

We present in full here for the first time the Anonymisation Decision-Making Framework, which can be applied, perhaps with minor modifications to the detail, to just about any data where confidentiality is an issue but sharing is valuable.

This book has been developed to address a need for a practical guide to anonymisation that gives more operational advice than the ICO’s Anonymisation Code of Practice, whilst being less technical and forbidding than the statistics and computer science literature. The book may be of interest to an anonymisation specialist who would appreciate a fresh, integrated perspective on the topic.

The book is intended to be organic and we will be updating it periodically. We welcome comments on the book at any time via our Reviewer Feedback Form. Just download the form here, complete and email it to:
