In an era with advanced technologies and extensive digitalization of information, information grows at an astonishing rate, creating many types and large volumes of data. Proper utilization of such Big Data has now become a key issue for both businesses and government agencies alike. Government policy planning, implementation, and results presentation also generate a large volume of valuable information and contents. The means of authorizing the editing and dissemination of such information without affecting the privacy of the general public has become an urgent issue that various countries in the world are looking into.
