Research Security

Many members of the HGSE community engage in research that involves the collection or use of legally protected information including Human Subject Information (HSI) or Restricted-Use Data (RUD) (e.g., NCES/IES, BLS, etc.). In conjunction with HGSE and Harvard security policies, the Harvard Research Data Security Policy (HRDSP) specifically outlines protections around the collection and use of research data. 

Please review the information contained within the research Approval Process and Research Security sections of the website for more guidance on where to start.
