Data Conversations: Protect your research from cyber threats! Online
Open data, open methods, and reproducible and transparent research are increasingly endorsed by funders, publishers, institutions and learned societies. But what does making your research open, transparent and reproducible mean in practice? What are the advantages and the pitfalls?
This edition of the Data Conversations will focus on Cyber Security. How can a researcher better guarantee the safety of their data, now and in the future? Two presentations will highlight aspects of information security to take into account when managing digital data. The presentations will be followed by a discussion.
In this Data Conversations researchers from different Faculties, Institutes and disciplines will have a chance to hear and learn from each other about their experiences with data security.
Come and share your open science and data stories and hear others. Find the registration button at the bottom of this page. At the moment, Data Conversations take place online. You will receive an email with a Zoom link after your registration.
