Storage and Data Security
Researchers at Lund University are offered different data storage solutions depending on the respective faculty. Talk to the research support at the library if you are unsure about where and how to best store your data. Information about Digital preservation is available on the Staff Pages. Researchers at the HT Faculties can (in addition to the home directory) be provided with access to a password protected project folder on a central server catalogue, where the access to the data is limited to the project participants, for more information, see The Guidelines concerning IT environment for employees.
Certain precautions must be taken to prevent unauthorised access to personal data or other sensitive data. During any collaborative activities, consider how the data is shared and make sure you apply safe practices to maintain confidentiality.
In such cases where research material cannot be stored locally, but needs to be shared with colleagues at other universities, Lund University employees should use/are advised to use LU Box. Data that contains sensitive information must not be shared in this way. FAQ on LU Box at LDC.
