Microdata Access in European Countries – Cooperation between National Statistical Institutes and Data Archives, Athens, October 16-17, 2014


Cooperation between an national statistical authority and an cessda data archive
Cooperation between an National Statistical Authority and an CESSDA Data Archive

Agreement

IAB, Nuremberg

and

UKDA, Colchester

about access to

Secure Use Files


Institute for employment research iab
Institute for Employment Research (IAB) CESSDA Data Archive

  • Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the German Federal Employment Agency (BA) at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB)

    • BA = National Statistical Authority

  • Responsible law: German Social Code Book

  • Detailed labour market data on institutions, persons and households (secure use files)

  • Access via guest stay and remote execution

    • Guest stay: data stays in Nuremberg access via remote desktop solution form “locations” (currently only in Germany)


Uk data archive ukda
UK Data Archive (UKDA) CESSDA Data Archive

  • Providesaccessto Secure Use Files via UKDA Secure Lab

  • Responsiblelaw: depends on dataowner

    • Secure Lab providesaccesstodatafrom 6 different dataownerswithin UK (oneofthem ONS)

  • Providesaccesstoconfidential/sensitive information:

    • Business organisations, socialsurveydata, administativerecords, childrenandyoungpeople

  • Access via Remote Desktop (toacademicresearchers at theirinstitutions in the UK – almost 600 users)


Short description of the solution
Short description of the solution CESSDA Data Archive

UKDA,

United Kingdom

IAB, Germany

  • Remote Desktop based on Citrix – users can work “live”.

  • Safe Rooms within the facilities of both partners.

  • Agreement between partners to undertake services.

  • Achievement:

    • First European location to work with IAB data outside of Germany.

    • First European location to work with UKDA data outside the UK.



What had to be done
What CESSDA Data Archivehadtobedone

Similar institutions but different workflows and understandings

  • Spoke to each other

  • Saw equivalences in how things are done

  • Found a common understanding

  • Set up a reciprocal Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

  • This MoU can be used as a template for

    • further extension of existing solution and

    • new partnerships using safe room remote access solutions

      All findings will be available at www.dwbproject.org


The memorandum of understanding mou
The Memorandum of Understanding ( CESSDA Data ArchiveMoU)

Equivalence, Trust, Reciprocal

Content of the MoU:

  • Services of Parties (The basic MoU)

  • Description of Safe Room Remote Desktop Service

  • Application process

  • Available research data

  • Fees

  • Relevant legislative texts

  • Pledge on Data Secrecy


Obstacles
Obstacles CESSDA Data Archive

  • No common language

  • No law for transnational access

    • Law of country where data is stored vs. law of country where data is accessed

  • Trust is hard to measure and validate for the people in charge of data protection

    • need to demonstrate ‘equivalence’

  • Need for compromising in a working environment

  • Accreditation of the system

    • Penetration tests; international standards (ISO 27001); IT security tests……providing confidence

  • UK researcher need training; IAB users not


Next steps
Next Steps CESSDA Data Archive

  • Get it up and running – likely within this year

  • Extend the solutions with more partners (CASD, France; CBS, Netherlands)

  • Use the MoU to create an consortium agreement

    • Need for a European wide agreement about transnational access

  • Build technical frameworks that supports transnational access to confidential data

    • (Proof of Concept is on the way)
