BU Information Security launches expanded website for researchers

As a researcher you may have noticed an increase in what your sponsors are asking for in cybersecurity assurances. We are here to help! From reviewing a Data Use Agreement to securely storing data at the end of a research project, our goal is to reduce your security and compliance burdens, letting you do what you do best: groundbreaking research.

As an initial step, we are pleased to share with you our revamped “Security for Researchers” webpages  where you will find self-help resources, such as cleared and reviewed applications ready for your use, approved transcription services, and storage solutions, as well as guidance on appropriate services for each data classification. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Reach out to buinfosec@bu.edu and we will help. We are happy to offer cybersecurity consultation services at any time.

In short, we know that doing your research has gotten more complex from a cybersecurity perspective and we want to help ease that complexity. Please check out our website or send us an email and let us know how we can help!
