Data management and protection starter kit: Tip sheet 4: Registration

2016 — By ELAN

Registration is the process of collecting information on program participants so that your team has a clear record of who is participating and a means to verify participants’ identity throughout the program lifecycle. Registration is also one of the first opportunities to demonstrate responsible data management.

While all humanitarian programs collect substantial personal information about participants (and sometimes potential participants and/or alternates), e-transfer programs often require that personally identifiable information (PII) is provided to financial service providers (FSPs) as well. The type of data collected may include participants’ contact details (addresses, telephone numbers, etc.); information about family members; and/or sensitive information, such as details about a participant’s disability or political affiliation.
