UK Law Proposal to Criminalize Re-Identification of Anonymized User Data

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/government/uk-law-proposal-to-criminalize-re-identification-of-anonymized-user-data/

        While Olejnik applauds the UK's efforts to expand user data
        privacy protections, he warns that the UK may be treading
        dangerous ground.  "There are several issues with [the]
        banning of reidentification," he says. "First, it won't work.
        Second, it will decrease security and privacy."  The biggest
        problem in Olejnik's eyes is that there's is no effective way
        to enforce it in practice. Second, it stifles security and
        privacy research who often re-identify anonymized data in
        their day-to-day work.
