Our genome data are safe

The data security issues experienced by the hospital data synstem does not affect NCGC genome data

The possibly security breach of the Helse Sørøst patient data may have revealed sensitive helath data for patients in that region to unauthorized persons. This could include the coded copies of the same data made available to our projects. However these would also be available as part of the health service system, where the identiy is available, so the additional re3search copies of rather neutral disease information would not provide any extra risk. The research genome data we generate is stored in a separate highly secure system at Oslo University, and is not affected by these problems.
