Mit dem Aufkommen neuer Technologien und deren Einbindung in unser tägliches Leben (z. B. Internet der Dinge) ergeben sich neue Formen der Nutzung personenbezogener Daten. In Kombination mit zunehmenden Rechenkapazitäten und immer besseren Erkennungsfunktionen, beispielsweise im Bereich der Biometrik, werfen diese Entwicklungen berechtigte Bedenken bezüglich des Schutzes von Privatsphäre und personenbezogenen Daten auf.



AEPD-EDPS joint paper on 10 misunderstandings related to anonymisation

Technological developments in recent years have steadily increased the demand for quality data. In this context, both public and private entities are considering anonymization as a means to share data without harming the fundamental rights of individuals. However, along with its growing popularity, some misconceptions related to anonymization have become widespread. 

The objective of this document is to raise awareness about some misunderstandings about anonymisation, and to motivate its readers to check assertions about the technology, rather than accepting them without verification.
