Sensitive Data Management for Researchers

Sensitive Data Management for Researchers workshop
Tuesday, October 9, 2018
11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Room 223 Sanford School of Public Policy (Rhodes Conference Room)
Register Online

The goal of this session is to help you better understand best practices for projects that collect, store, and/or analyze data considered “sensitive.” We will discuss: common data types and sources; how Duke’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), Office of Research Support (ORS), and the Information Technology Security Office (ITSO) expect data to be protected throughout a project’s lifecycle; resources available for sensitive data storage and analysis; and how best to utilize those resources.

A variety of box lunches and drinks will be provided. If you have special dietary restrictions, email oit-training@duke.edu by Oct. 1.

Learn IT @ Lunch Identity Theft: Followup Resources

Additional MFA Requirements Added April 17

Students will be required to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on some services beginning April 17.

For students, MFA will be required to access DukeHub, Box, Sakai, and Outlook Web Access (OWA) to Office 365. They are already required to use it for Duke@Work, the Virtual Private Network (VPN), Virtual Computing Manager (VCM), and Teer Lab machines.

For faculty/staff, we will be adding MFA in front of OWA/Office 365 and Time and Attendance, when accessing these sites from off-campus (similar to what we did with Box). Time and Attendance is picking up the requirement due to it being “behind” the same authentication infrastructure as O365 (Microsoft ADFS).

If you have any questions, please ask the OIT Service Desk or the IT Security Office.

MFA added for students

Students will be required to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), or 2-step verification on some services beginning April 17 for added security.

MFA will be required to access DukeHub, Box, Sakai, and Outlook Web Access (mail.duke.edu) for Office 365. Students are already required to use it for Duke@Work, the Virtual Private Network (VPN), Virtual Computing Manager (VCM), and Teer Lab machines.

Direct communications have begun going out to students about the new requirement from the IT security office.

If you have any questions, please ask the OIT Service Desk at 919-684-2200 or the IT Security Office at security.duke.edu.
