Definition of Pseudo-Anonymized Data

Pseudo-anonymized data is a type of data that has had certain identifiable information removed or otherwise obfuscated, allowing for analysis and study without revealing the identity of the individual from whom the data was gathered.

This can include things like name, address, phone number, etc.

Pseudo-anonymization helps to protect people's privacy while still allowing for insight into large pools of data.

This method also helps to provide a layer of security in cases where sensitive data needs to be shared or studied but must remain private.
