Guide to Basic Anonymisation

The intent of this guide is to provide information on techniques that could be applied in anonymising data. This guide primarily addresses organisations which do not intend to release the anonymised data into the public domain, but who share data with other organisations or entities, where additional administrative and technical controls may be imposed to reduce the risk of unauthorised disclosure of personal data.
