What is data security? How can you protect your research data? And what are your legal and ethical responsibilities to do so?

Data management involves the organization, storage, preservation, and sharing of research data created and used during a research project. Researchers must employ appropriate strategies to protect their data and proactively decide what to do with the data upon completion of their project. This is critical for research involving sensitive research data, which are protected by local, state, or federal laws.

This session is aimed at researchers who are just starting to collect data (e.g., questionnaires, interviews, field notebooks, audio and video files, photographs, data files, etc.) as well as anyone who wants an introduction to the latest tools and resources that will help manage sensitive research data.

Join us for a session with Social Sciences Computing Services (SSCS) staff, who will offer an overview of privacy policies, data use agreements (DUAs), University processes for managing sensitive research data, and support services provided by the SSCS.
