As the recent Airbus A400M military transport aircraft crash shows, data (or absence of data) can impact on the safety of systems with catastrophic consequences. This is now a growing problem as more systems become dependent on many types of data in safety-related and safety-critical applications.

This event shows how to manage safety-related data in a variety of real situations. It is a follow-up to the successful seminar “How to Stop Data Causing  Harm” held in December 2012. The guidance that has been produced by the SCSC Data Safety Initiative Working Group (DSIWG) is outlined, and then its application in different sectors and situations is explored.
