Otherwise, all personal data must be encrypted. Personal data on laptop computers and their removable storage media must always be encrypted. Back-ups:Personal data must be regularly backed up. These copies are to be kept separate and well protected so that the information can be recovered after a crash.Authorisation:If the computer is used by more than one person, access to personal data must be controlled with a technical authorisation system. Authorisation is to be confined to the person(s) who need the information in their work. Usernames and passwords are personal and non-transferrable. Procedures must be in place for the granting of authorisation. Log:If the computer is used by more than one person, an automatic log or similar must be installed to make it possible to monitor who has had access to personal data at a future date. This log is to list the user, the date and time of access, and the names of the person(s) whose data was retrieved. This information is to be checked as necessary. Data communication:External data communication links are to be protected with a callback or other technical function for checking authorisation. Personal data transferred via data link to a computer located outside the jurisdiction of the organisation must be encrypted. Destruction:When stationary or removable storage media containing personal data are no longer to be used for their intended purpose, all storage media must be destroyed. Alternatively, the personal data must be erased in a way that is impossible to retrieve. Repair and service:When computer equipment is repaired or serviced by a third party, a security agreement must be signed with the service company in question. When computer equipment is being serviced, all storage media containing personal data must be removed; if this is not possible, the service must be carried out under the supervision of the organisation. Service via data link may only proceed after the person performing it has been securely identified. Service personnel are to be given access to the system for the duration of the service only. If a separate communication channel is in place for service, it must be kept closed when service is not being carried out.

Studies are experimental investigations of a particular phenomenon, e.g., case-control studies on a particular trait or cancer research projects reporting matching cancer normal genomes from patients.
