      Data Safe Haven Assurance


      The Information Governance team can provide support for researchers on data applications. As well as the NHS, they have experience with compliance standards for the Data Safe Haven (DSH) covering data providers, such as the Department for Education (DfE), Transport for London (TfL) and others.

      They also guide researchers on data handling, particularly around pseudonymisation/ anonymisation and the security of IT systems. For general queries, please email the Information Governance team at: infogov@ucl.ac.uk
