Investigation into privacy preserving data publishing with multiple sensitive attributes is performed to reduce probability of adversaries to guess the sensitive values. Masking the sensitive values is usually performed by anonymizing data by using generalization and suppression techniques. A successful anonymization technique should reduce information loss due to the generalization and suppression. This research attempts to solve both problems in microdata with multiple sensitive attributes. We propose a novel overlapped slicing method for privacy preserving data publishing with multiple sensitive attributes. We used discernibility metrics to measure information loss. The experiment result shows that our method obtained a lower discernibility value than other methods.
