Practical Considerations for Managing Sensitive Data

Practical Considerations for Managing Sensitive Data Online

Data sharing is becoming an increasingly prevalent and expected part of the research process. Researchers may be hesitant to share datasets about human subjects, and rightfully so. While some data can be shared respecting Institutional Review Board (IRB) and federal restrictions, other data is ultimately not publicly shareable. 

This webinar will address conflicts that can arise when attempting to balance the protection of data with expectations for open data, such as restrictive language in data use agreements, IRB protocols, and consent forms.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand types of sensitive data and terminology
  • Develop curation skills
  • Identify institutional-level efforts to ensure safe sharing of protected data

Instructor: Caroline Wood, Senior Manager of Data Security and Compliance, Department of Health Care Policy, Harvard Medical School

Questions: Julie Goldman, Research Data Services, Countway Library, julie_goldman@harvard.edu
