Data Management Planning for Secure Services
The DMP-SS project focuses on the development of a set of tools to assist with the development of Data Management Plans where information security is a critically important consideration. The project team is based within the faculty of Population Health Sciences at UCL and draws from a range of research project. The project aims to implement an Information Security Management System that is integrated within a data management planning environment, using the Digital Curation Centre’s DMPOnline tool as the basis for the information model and building in interoperability.
The project is conceived as being ‘standards driven’ in that it makes use of the ISO-27001 information security standard for the design of the ISMS and the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) for the management of data management plan metadata. This use of well-established information standards should provide the basis for re-use and widespread adoption by the scientific community.
The objective of this study is to develop a set of extensible, standards-driven tools for the development of secure data services that are underpinned by clear and standardised data management plans. We aim to liaise with the Digital Curation Centre so that we may use their DMPOnline tool as the basis for the creation of local data management plans, as a DDI repository service. We aim to make use of this DDI –DMP repository for linkage to our Information Security Management System.
Anticipated Outputs and Outcomes
DDI compliant tools including:
- Data management planning design tools
- Data management plan brking service
- Information security management system
- Interoperability with DMPOnline
- Dissemination of output, including workshops, report and assessment by major cohort studies.
