Data Safe Haven

Data Safe Haven is a secure place used to store particular research data, for access exclusively by approved colleagues.

Strict safeguards control who can access medical and personal data for research. When researchers use this data, they must use IT systems with very high standards of security.

What it provides

  • Secure file transfer
  • Adherence to the NHS Information Governance Toolkit
  • The ability to store and use data within a secure system

Requirements for use of Data Safe Haven are identified as part of the Research Data Management process.
