Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group: 

This is a new and improved re-lauch of the 2016 RDA/NISO Privacy Implications of Research Data Sets IG which have started to work on the issues but due to circumstances has become dormant. The purpose of this IG is therefore to revive the focus on this very important topic and a great opportunity for everyone to join and shape the work we will be doing.

Short Group Status: 

Some work has been done in the previous IG, and the purpose is to re-focus on the topic and objectives to re-active work on this very important topic for RDA to contribute to !
