Presentation Topic: "Strategies and Tools for Deidentifying Human Subjects' Data for Sharing"

In response to the growing emphasis on data sharing within the research community, researchers are now often urged or obligated to share their data. This task becomes challenging when handling datasets containing sensitive identifiers of individuals and organizations. This workshop provides participants with an understanding of various types of identifiers and equips them with the skills to assess the disclosure risk associated with their data. Additionally, attendees will be introduced to a range of tools and resources provided by GW to facilitate the effective de-identification of data for secure sharing.
