There are a variety of services offered by UCL ISD that help with storing and managing data. These services have automatic backup to protect against data loss and a recovery service to retrieve accidently deleted files, so they are a safer choice than personal storage devices or cloud storage accounts. Personal storage providers should be particularly avoided when working with sensitive data as the data may not be kept under the security standards required by GDPR or the UK Data Protection Act 2018.
Your data is precious, so look after it properly!
There is a choice of several different storage systems. Everyone at UCL has access to basic file storage, but you can request an account if you need specialist support for large data volumes, high performance computing, or for secure storage of data according to legal requirements.
