Data Anonymisation from Wizuda enables you to Simply and Effectively Anonymise or Pseudonymise Data.
Data anonymisation is a form of information sanitisation in which data anonymisation tools encrypt or remove personally identifiable information. This is done by deleting or encoding identifiers linking the person with the data that is being stored.
Wizuda simplifies Data Anonymisation by quickly and easily removing personal or sensitive information without having to use separate data transformation tools.
1. Import the file you need to minimise.
Techniques such as blanking, masking and/or hashing can be applied to your data to anonymise it.
Replacements: change names or addresses using either random or consistent replacements from in built lists of data taken from census data. Apply statistical distribution for additional security.
Numbers: round numbers up or down and/or apply caps.
Filtering allows you to remove content, rows or columns.
Data that is irreversibly anonymised is no longer deemed personal data and therefore is not subject to GDPR.
Pseudonymisation is a key part in Data Protection By Design.
Pseudonymisation replaces personal identifiers with pseudonyms and while the personal data is still deemed identifiable, the level of difficulty in the reidentification is taken into consideration in the case of a data breach.
The GDPR encourages pseudonymisation of data as a risk based measure for improving data security.
