Dear all,
Very happy to be involved.
On the policy side, the resources compiled by INGSA may be useful and could also be a good avenue for dissemination. INGSA is the International Network of Government Science Advisors (like CODATA is is part of the International Science Council).
INGSA COVID Science Advice Resources
Apologies if I’ve missed it – I haven’t seen a link to a document / table to log and categorise resources.

Hello all,
I’m Simon from Cancer Research UK; I oversee our Secure Data Environment and policies around how we handle patient data.
Through the SDAP group I was also involved in producing two items that may be of use:
Handbook on Statistical Disclosure Control for Outputs ( This is designed to help researchers and RDCs make their outputs from sensitive data safe.
Data Aware Training ( This is a training course for researchers who are working with sensitive data and includes assessments.
Both of these are free to use, and the training is designed to be customizable for organisations to pick which bits make sense for them. Please feel free to make use of them if they are helpful (both in this context or more generally).
Kind regards,
Simon Parker (he/him)
