The tool that we present is a Decision Tree that is designed to support the choice of a Privacy Enhancing Technology (PET) in the context of inter-organizational data analysis. The tree is supported by a Guide and Checklist document. We advise the reader to scan the Guide and consider the questions in the Checklist before exploring the Decision Tree as this facilitates the process.
The Checklist motivates the user to define the use case in detail, pinpoint potential issues and think about potential solutions. It specifically requests the user to not (yet) restrict him- or herself to PET-based solutions.
The Guide helps an organization to efficiently and successfully use the Decision Tree. Its purpose is to facilitate a discussion that involves technical and legal aspects; however, note that it is not a legal document and you should always conduct your own legal research before using PETs.
Interactive tools for identifying key considerations in your challenge and exploring how the answers to these considerations lead to particular PETs that can be part of the solution to the challenge. The tools display the same content in another fashion.

The Decision Tree and this document were created by the CBS, KNB, Rabobank, TNO and the University of Maastricht in a use case of Brightlands Techruption. Brightlands Techruption helps corporate companies, governmental organizations and knowledge institutes partner up, so they can develop innovative solutions through the application of disruptive technologies like AI, MPC, SSI and blockchain.
