This document contains access, security and privacy protocols for the Human Resource Capability survey (terms and conditions for use are contained in Appendix 4). The survey data are managed according to three key criteria.
1 Information is handled securely and professionally, according to established and transparent standards.
2 No information that could identify a particular individual is ever released from the survey.
3 The survey complies with relevant legislative provisions and established ethical standards.
The SSC uses four methods to ensure that these criteria are met.
1 Only designated custodians of the data have access to data at the unit record level
2 Survey data are managed in a secure environment
3 We apply robust statistical methods to ensure that no individual could be identified from any report from the data
4 A specific confidentiality agreement binds the custodians of the data to these protocols. This supplements established conduct and security commitments.
