Pseudonymisation and Data Trusteeship
To carry out scientific studies on sensitive personal data (e.g. in the context of medical studies), you need a pseudonym generation service. In addition to the Personal Identifier (PID), you also want to generate Subject Identifier Codes (SICs) for different data sources in order to avoid unwanted merging
of data records. Last but not least, for the separate storage of study data and the identifying personal data you need an independent data trustee outside of your instruction’s authority.
We offer PID and SIC generation services and act as data trustee for the identifying personal data. The service is operated applying comprehensive technical and organizational measures that ensure data protection and security even in the context of sensitive studies.
