Grant applications and ethics protocols suggest you need to ensure research data is kept secure, but the “how” of managing this task is rarely addressed. We’ll guide you through common research issues connected with privacy and security: using online or “cloud” services for file storage, ensuring a lost laptop doesn’t mean compromised data, taking control of online tracking, and managing and sharing all those passwords. This is a privacy and security toolkit no researcher should be without! Attendees should bring a laptop or other internet-connected device. Instructor: Kris Joseph
