Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 11017)


Within life-science research the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation has a significant operational impact on organisations that use and exchange controlled-access Human Data. One implication of the GDPR is data bookkeeping. In this poster we describe a software tool, the Data Information System (DAISY), designed to record data protection relevant provenance of Human Data held and exchanged by research organisations.
