Sublime measures of Data are being produced by online business, different applications, banks, schools, and so forth by virtue of advanced innovation. Pretty much all industries are endeavoring to adjust to this gigantic data. Big Data phenomenon has begun to gain noteworthiness. However, this massive amount of data may also lead to many privacy issues, which make Big Data Protection a major concern for any organization. Privacy Preservation methods are becoming progressively significant in order to tackle such security issues. Therefore, the paper investigates different security dangers and, in this manner, expresses the techniques for their avoidance. A general point of view for privacy preservation has been recommended.
