Sensitive Data IG

27 Jan 2021

Dear group members, 

There is a new IG on Sensitive Data. Please the below information communicated by Kristal Spreadborough (co - chair) : 

The Sensitive Data Interest Group (yet to be formally endorsed) met for the first time as a BoF at RDA VP16. The focus of this BoF was to highlight the diversity of sensitive data, and to identify gaps and resources for working with sensitive data. Key themes from the BoF included understanding 1) how data can be sensitive in different contexts, 2) how to manage sensitive data across data types and disciplines, and 3) the challenges of sharing sensitive data in and across different domains. At the end of this meeting, a group of people volunteered to be co-chairs. This group of co-chairs has met regularly since the BoF and we are now in the early stages of drafting our charter. We will meet again at RDA VP17 with the broad aims of discussing the charter with the group, encouraging engagement from other IG members, existing groups and networks, and the international community, and identifying the key aims to which the group will work towards.    


The group is currently inviting RDA members interested in helping shape the discussions around IG topics and deliverables to join the IG and their proposed session at VP17 to share perspectives on sensitive data and discuss interactions with other RDA groups.
