Data storage and security of the data needs to be ensured by the entire organization. An organisation's governance describes the roles and responsibility in full detail and is leading to carry out policy and assure quality of all biobank activities. This includes the registration, processing, storing, sharing and distribution of data and physical biomaterials according to strict internal rules and laws and regulations.
The governance is carried out organization-wide and comprises the implementation of laws and regulations on privacy, data protection, process validation and risk management.
With Quaero, full governance can be implemented over the entire digital biobank collection by deploying a clear, transparent data stewardship model to control data access and processing. Quaero possesses an unique architecture in respect of "item (privacy) by design" and helps you to meet all the requirements of the new European directive General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will apply from May 2018.
