Safeguarding access and safeguarding meaning as strategies for achieving confidentiality

Fein, Erich C. and Kulik, Carol T. (2011) Safeguarding access and safeguarding meaning as strategies for achieving confidentiality. Industrial and Organizational Psychology, 4 (4). pp. 479-481. ISSN 1754-9426


We propose that two of the professional practice guidelines proposed by Saari and Scherbaum—develop policies and protect identity—are the most relevant to managing confidentiality. These guidelines connect to two distinct strategies used to achieve confidentiality: safeguarding access and safeguarding meaning. We further suggest several important criteria for judging when to apply these strategies, which include the number of individuals who have access to identified data, the length of time the data.
