Introduction to Sensitive Data & De-identification

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.

Office hours to support this workshop will be held on Friday, 16 October. Please register in advance.

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. The series is designed to be taken as a complete cycle, in order, over a three week period this fall. The sessions will build on one another using a mock research project and data, but we encourage you to bring your own project if you’d like!

These sessions will be presented by the UBC Research Commons, UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC), the UBC Okanagan Library and the UBC Centre for Scholarly Communications. Follow us on Twitter with the hashtag #UBCRDM2020!
