About this event

This workshop uses practical and discussion-based training to guide researchers about identifying what constitutes sensitive data, the risks of working with sensitive data, and how to appropriately manage those risks. It covers the “Five Safes” framework and researchers’ responsibilities, and introduces ways to promote data security and mitigate disclosure risks.
