Data Acquisition and Use Review/Consulting

Frequently, data sets acquired from outside organizations will come with certain requirements related to the processing, storage, and destruction of data. These requirements vary wildly from organization to organization, and the OIS compliance team is available to help you understand what the legal requirements mean for your project. If, in the process of acquiring or using data, you receive an agreement that includes these requirements, please contact the OIS compliance team at security@psu.edu. OIS involvement in the design and planning of your project will reduce the time-to-approval for research projects impacted by externally-imposed requirements.
