Securing the research data spread across your institution is a challenge requiring robust processes of discovery, triage, and diplomacy. Almost inevitably some of your most critical research data will be stored lovingly in a wetlab on an SGI Indy that "must not be patched." This presentation will describe how the School of Arts and Sciences at UPenn has combined university policy with data "interventions" to entice researchers to move critical data to centralized services. We'll discuss access control, service agreements, and charge-backs and how to convince faculty without using FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt). Attendees will leave with a reproducible model for finding and securing research data.
