Objective

Humanitarian projects usually contain sensitive information and are more prone to risks. Hence it is important to include security holistically in project planning. The objective of the session would be to present good data security practises to be followed while working on a humanitarian project.

Description

I will be talking about a process designed by technologists and human rights activists during responsible data forum which was held in March 2015 at Manila .Here we have designed a detailed process for risk assesment for human rights documentation based on responsible data project lifecycle (https://wiki.responsibledata.io/Data_in_the_project_lifecycle).
In this session I will be sharing the process and along with that good practises one should be following while designing a humanitarian project.
