About Us

A rapid rise in malicious cyber activity and several well-publicized incidents at academic centers led UCSF Leadership to determine that a thorough review of our data management and data sharing practices was necessary to ensure the appropriate protection of our data assets.

At the Chancellor’s request, a task force comprised of research, technology, and operational leaders across the University reviewed how we share data with external partners and created a set of recommendations that have resulted in the implementation of standard processes for the review of data sharing engagements that may carry higher risks.
