Keeping Data Safe & Secure
Fall 2023 Research Data Management Seminar Series
Research involves increasingly complex arrangements for the storage and transmission of research data. Data privacy and security planning are necessary to protect research subjects and to safeguard sensitive, personally identifiable information. You must keep in mind the formats your data are stored in, the devices and locations in which they are stored, as well as methods for keeping your data secure.
During this online seminar, we will discuss Harvard data classification levels, appropriate storage and collaboration platforms, mitigating data risk, and overall practices for keeping your data safe throughout your project.
Instructors: Sarah Marchese, Research Data Analyst, HMS Research Computing
