Data Mining plays a vital role in today's information-oriented world where it has been widely applied in various organizations. The current trend is that organizations need to share data for mutual benefit. This has led to a lot of concern over privacy in the recent years. It has also raised a potential threat of revealing sensitive data of an individual when the data is released publicly. Various methods have been proposed to tackle the privacy preservation problem. But the recurring problem is information loss. The loss of sensitive information about certain individuals may affect the data quality and in extreme cases the data may become completely useless.
