Helping you bring a structured approach to anonymisation
There has been an explosion in the collection, usage and sharing of personal data. Regulations protecting personal and personally-identifiable data mean that both individuals and companies are increasingly reluctant to share data that could bring huge benefits to everyone.
Could anonymisation provide the answer and how can you begin to apply it to data?
This course will introduce the latest thinking on anonymisation and work through a practical exercise in anonymising data while maintaining utility and minimising risk. Through the practical exercise, we will explore the needs of different stakeholders, both internal and external and explore how tools like the ODI Data Ethics Canvas and Consequence Scanning toolkit can help.

- Describe what anonymisation is and its benefits;
- Evaluate when anonymisation needs to be applied and when does it not;
- Explain a number of case-studies in data anonymisation;

"The assignments were the highlight of the course. They were well designed – it’s good to use real live data from a different sphere than I’m used to working in. And I really liked how they built on the previous assignment learnings.”
