Introduction to Sensitive Data & De-identification

October 13, 2020 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Research Data Management Fall Series

Data regarding human subjects can pose a number of unique challenges, and language that is articulated during the ethics application and in consent forms has the potential to unnecessarily restrict what can be done with the data. This course will introduce considerations when dealing with sensitive data, including levels of access, consent forms, direct and indirect identifiers, and will introduce the process of data de-identification and considerations.

Nick Rochlin is the research data management specialist in UBC’s Advanced Research Computing team. He is active in the Portage Network of RDM professionals, co-chairing the Training Expert Group and the Institutional Strategies Working Group, and an active member of the FRDR User Experience & Training Group.

Luc Letarte is a security analyst with the Sensitive Research team at UBC Advanced Research Computing. He is a graduate from the University of Québec in Montréal and holds many years of experience in different segments of the public and private sector including financial, legal and health care. He specializes in information technology governance, privacy and security.

This workshop is part of the RDM Fall Series 2020.
