If research data contains information that can identify a living individual, that data must be processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act. Dr Roger Moore, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology, and Samantha Hill, the University's Information Disclosure Manager, will explain how to keep the processing of research data within the bounds of the data protection legislation, what to think about and when. Samantha will also give tips on other information governance issues associated with research data such as, how long to store information and where best to store it.
