The protection of scientific and medical data, as well as of health data, is an important and strategic issue. Defining the nature of the data collected, its use and the recipients of the data are key issues to address.

The specificity of certain activities linked to the sector, in particular the strict regulations relating to clinical trials and pharmacovigilance, led the French Data Protection Authority (“CNIL” in France) to set up « methodologies » and specific documents.
The sensitivity of health data and the potential impact of a violation of the regulation for individuals at the time of Big Data are a major stake in the era of e-health and in the context of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
