Green Building Data: The Map to Avoiding Legal Issues

As an expert on green buildings, you are probably handling large volumes of sensitive data on green buildings & sustainable infrastructure. Some of this data may include sensitive information such as company financials, employee health statistics and building design details to aggregated and non-sensitive information such as, internal energy usage patterns and performance metrics.

What is the route that this data takes? Are there any laws which prevent its sharing? Does this data need to be destroyed at some point? Can this data be published in academic writings or industry reports of the recipient? Is the “processed data” liable to be treated differently?

This course discusses data security needs & challenges across sectors and international boundaries.

If in a typical kitchen the surface is only a top layer that covers the kitchen units, in this course, we would like to propose the surface as the core of the kitchen which holds the different elements together in quite an unexpected way. An excellent opportunity to experiment with common areas like kitchens and bathrooms. We always strive towards the alternative, the humoristic and still question the traditional approach to design.
