What provisions are in place for data security (including data recovery as well as secure storage and transfer of sensitive data)? Is the data safely stored in certified repositories for long term preservation and curation?
Biological data will be securely stored at local biobanks and analog data will be digitalized and destroyed. All digital data will be stored and managed through the DRE. The environment is secure and compliant with all laws and regulations (D4LS, Feb 2017). Security copies will be done periodically to ensure all data is properly preserved.
