Abstract: Organisations handle employees', customers' and third parties' Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in a number of ways and for a variety of reasons; when doing this, it is important that privacy is taken into account. Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) provide a mechanism that helps with this, and can be used in conjunction with higher level policy definition, human processes, training, etc. In this paper we conduct a brief survey of Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) in recent years and show how these may help address different types of privacy harm to employees, customers and, more generally, to data subjects.
