New Research Data Safety Application

December 5, 2019


December 5 is the soft launch of the new Data Safety Application!

The research administration and compliance team has been working with the Office of the Vice Provost of Research and Harvard University Information Technology to develop a Data Safety and Security system to support the review and implementation of research data management plans. The soft launch of the Data Safety Application on December 5 will provide a period where School Security Officers can use the system to complete reviews and work with research teams to gather feedback. Based on this period of feedback, HUIT and OVPR will continue to refine system functionality and make improvements to the security review process.

What is Data Safety? It is a new application intended to support tracking, monitoring, and compliance associated with the data security requirements for research data sets (sensitive information collected as part of research, or obtained or shared under a Data Use Agreement or sponsored award).
