Processing big data to drive useful information has been in spotlight in recent years. Numerous approaches have been proposed to explore different ways to analyse the big data. However, data privacy has been an issue during the process because data could have been from various sources and they may contain sensitive personal information of individual. Hadoop MapReduce has been considered as one of the most promising approaches for big data processing. This chapter provides an overview of MapReduce environment, privacy challenges faced during the processing of data in MapReduce cluster, existing approaches adopted by various researchers to
mitigate these issues. We also provide future guidelines for anonymized data processing to ensure individual privacy in MapReduce.
