Data Security

FSU values and takes seriously the importance of properly collecting, using, maintaining, retaining, sharing and citing in scholarly works the data involved in research activities. Following best practices in data management and security also can help researchers work efficiently and effectively in developing compelling and competitive funding proposals and gaining deserved recognition for their hard work.

Our biostatistics team can provide guidance on managing your data and keeping it safe. Once we understand your specific data security needs, we also can connect you with expertise across FSU so you don’t have to waste time searching for the right resource.
