ISO/IEC 27559 Privacy-enhancing data
de-identification framework


This standard will provide a non-prescriptive framework for identifying and mitigating re-identification risks, and risks associated with the lifecycle of de-identified data.

Organizations can use the standard to properly de-identify data, build trust with data subjects and meet compliance requirements.

Scope of the standard

As data analytics increasingly relies on sharing and combining data sets containing de-identified (anonymized) data, the risks of re-identification are growing. This standard will provide guidance on recognizing and mitigating those risks.

Content of the standard




The project started in 2019.

It is currently at PWI stage.
