Data Governance Board
NORC’s Data Governance Board (DGB) designs, implements, and enforces all policies around data exchange agreements and business associate agreements. The DGB safeguards data transmission and storage, ensuring that all appropriate data security and protection requirements are clearly defined. Since its formal inception in 2014, the DGB has conducted more than 200 reviews of data sharing agreements for our projects.
In collaboration with the DGB, NORC’s Chief Privacy Officer is responsible for directing the overall implementation of the Privacy Act and all privacy policies that aim to protect NORC’s research participant data. The Chief Privacy Officer advises on privacy issues from a contractual and legal perspective and establishes and reviews policies that regulate data exchange.
