This course is designed for people working in research, evaluation, data linkage or data analytics in Australia, who want to understand how privacy law impacts on their ability to collect, analyse, link and share data about people.
There is a changing risk profile in the research sector. Technological developments can facilitate wide-scale data linkage, AI can turbo-charge analytics, funders and publishers are pushing for ‘open data’, yet at the same time community expectations with regards to privacy protections are increasing. Both locally and globally, we are seeing a strengthening of privacy laws, which impact on organisations’ ability to collect, analyse, link and share data about people.
How do researchers and data scientists navigate the rules and requirements?
This 90 minute webinar, presented by leading privacy practitioner Anna Johnston, covers the core concepts needed to understand how to comply with privacy law when conducting research, evaluation, data linkage or data analytics.
This webinar covers:
- Research participant and community expectations about data use
- The role of consent, how to get it, and when it is not needed
- Data security and the role of the 5 Safes
- Enabling compliant data sharing
- Using cloud, hosting or sharing data overseas, and what if GDPR applies
Presented by our Principal Anna Johnston. Anna is acknowledged as one of Australia’s foremost experts on privacy law and practice. With qualifications in law, public policy and management, and more than 20 years’ experience in legal, policy and research roles, Anna brings a breadth of perspectives and a wealth of experience to dealing with privacy and data governance issues. Anna has guided clients grappling with privacy and data management issues in the research and data analytics space across non-profit medical research institutes, for-profit data analytics companies, health service providers, universities and governments conducting multi-agency research and evaluation projects.
