Knowing Your Data: Security and Compliance Issues

Presented April 6, 2016

This workshop took an in-depth look at the rules that apply to data over the entire research life cycle. Participants reviewed the OSU Institutional Data Policy and took a case-based approach to investigate data types and their classifications, how they can be shared and stored as well as security and compliance issues. Presenters discussed how this information should be integrated into federally-required data management plans. Presenters answered questions such as:

  • In what ways can you and others interact with your data (who, when, where and how)?
  • What policies and people are available to guide your decisions?
  • How can you ensure that the data you collect is secure?
  • How can you safely manage sensitive information? (Which hosting services are okay to use?)
  • What should you do if you suspect the loss, unauthorized access, or exposure of institutional data
