Securing and backing up data
- All digital research data will be transferred to a designated Research Drive on La Trobe's enterprise storage, which automatically ensures data is backed-up, secure and provides reliable data recovery.
- Master copies of the research data will be read-only, with only the Principle Investigator to have edit access.
- Master copies of the research data will only be kept on the University’s networked drives, which are backed up daily.
- The University’s networked drives are protected by firewalls and anti-virus software.
