Current days privacy concern about an individual, an organization and social media etc. plays a vital role. Online business deals with millions of transactions daily, these transactions may leads to privacy issues. Association rule hiding is a solution to these privacy issue, which focuses on hiding the sensitive information produces from online departmental stores ,face book datasets etc..These techniques are used to identify the sensitive rules and provide the privacy to the sensitive rules, so that results the lost rules and ghost rules. Algorithms developed so far are lack in achieving the better outcomes. This paper propose two novel algorithm that uses the properties from genetic algorithm and water marking algorithm for better way of hiding the sensitive association rules.
