The presentation by Dennis Schimidt, Director of OIS, will be approximately 30-40 minutes, with plenty of time for your questions at the end. We will also be distributing a new security checklist for research projects to use as a guide to manage their team’s compliance with all state, federal and UNC requirements for data securities. This is intended to be a very practical session and will address important data security issues specific to research such as:

  • How do I use KeePass.info to manage data passwords across staff members on our research team?
  • Is my flash drive appropriately encrypted and what happens if I lose it?
  • If I leave UNC, what happens to my data – can, and how, do I take it with me?
  • And… learn other practical solutions that will ensure research data security for your research project.

Each research project is urged to send at least one staff member (e.g., Project Coordinator) in addition to the PI, though all investigators, trainees, staff, and students involved in research (e.g., research assistants, students completing theses/dissertations, etc.) are strongly encouraged to attend.

We know this may overlap with some scheduled classes and previously scheduled meetings. If you are not able to send someone from your research team, please contact John Bulluck, Research Systems Analyst (john_bulluck@med.unc.edu), so we can schedule a time to meet and review the information in person. DAHS faculty or administrative staff without research involvement are not required to attend, but are welcome to join us and may find the information helpful.
