Earlier this summer, I said one of my goals was to make a smooth transition between being a graduate student and being employed full-time.

Cloud Computing and Research Data

Almost four years ago I wrote a post entitled, “FERPA, GLBA, and HIPAA in Vendor Contracts," the theme of which was that higher education needed vendors to come to the negotiating table with those privacy and security measures in place.
