Victoria’s Information Commissioner has today revealed Public Transport Victoria (PTV) breached privacy laws by releasing nearly two billion lines of what it claimed was de-identified data to support a data science competition in mid-2018.

It was de-identified to the extent that the card IDs — the name of the person using the card if it is registered to them — was removed. But researchers at the University of Melbourne discovered they could re-identify their own data, and the data of someone they’d travelled with, and link all the trips using the same card.
