Management of sensitive research data

Presenter: Samuel Simango, Manager: Research Data Services, Library and Information Service
Time: 10:30-11:45

Procedurally, Stellenbosch University has measures in place in the form of institutional permission and ethical clearance which must be obtained whenever researchers make use of research data collected from human participants. But what happens after such institutional permission and/or ethical clearance have been obtained? How does a researcher ensure that the sensitive data that are collected are managed appropriately? This presentation will attempt to answer these questions by placing emphasis on the following aspects:
  • Secure storage of sensitive research data 
  • De-identification of sensitive research data
  • Data sharing principles that should be considered when making sensitive data accessible 
In the process, attendees will be directed to some useful resources.
