Data anonymization has become an increasing important topic in the voluntary and community sector as organisations consider how to maximize the value of their data while minimising risks to privacy and preserving public confidence

The incoming General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) recognise the effect of anonymisation by providing exceptions to many of the provisions of the regulation when steps have been taken to de-identify (anonymise) personal data. By making it impossible or practically difficult to identifiable a person from data, data controllers and processors are permitted to use, process and publish personal information in many ways.

Course requirements This is a hands-on session, so please bring a wi-fi enabled laptop. We can provide a limited number of these, please let us know in advance if you require one.
