Managing Research Data - Key Aspects of Legal Compliance and Records Management

2 ½ hours

This session covers the legal requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 in terms of research data, as well as good practice in the management of research records, whether in paper or electronic format. The Act places several obligations on the University and individual researchers in respect of how they use people’s personal data and what individuals are entitled to know about this use. This workshop will cover:

  • the impact of the Data Protection Act on research projects;
  • sources of advice and support for data protection queries;
  • informed consent and fair processing notices;
  • confidentiality;
  • storage media and data security;
  • retention periods
  • aspects of the Freedom of Information Act.
