Share your needs regarding Sensitive Data

The Sensitive Data Expert Group (SDEG), part of the Research Data Management Network of Experts supported by the Digital Research Alliance of Canada, was established to create resources and tools to use in the collection, use, management and deposit of sensitive research data. The audience for these include researchers, research ethics board (REB) administrators and members, data librarians, data custodians and others. To date, the SDEG has created three products that may be used by these communities: glossaryrisk matrix and informed consent template language.

The SDEG is now considering what resources or tools to create next, and are looking to its stakeholders to assist in this planning. To do so, we are requesting that interested participants fill out the following survey. Your responses are anonymous and will be used for planning purposes only. Any questions can be directed to Rachel Zand ( or Lori Walker (
