The Spanish data protection authority (AEPD) and European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) have published a joint paper, breaking down ten misunderstandings related to anonymisation. The regulators have released the paper due to the growing interest in anonymization as a means to share data without harming the fundamental rights of individuals.

The joint paper aims to both increase awareness around common misunderstandings and encourage companies to check assertions about the technology, rather than accepting them without verification.
