The protection of scientific, medical and 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 product vigilance (pharmacovigilance, medical device vigilance), led the French Data Protection Authority (“CNIL” in France) to set up « methodologies » and specific documents.
