On Thursday, May 13th, CSDE Training Director and Research Scientist Christine Leibbrand will present on “Preventing and Identifying Fraud in Survey Data Collection”, as part of a UW Office of the CISO information security briefing. With a plethora of online platforms for collecting survey data, advertising surveys, and paying participants, it has become easier than ever to collect survey data. However, with those opportunities has come increasing risk that survey data will be hacked and the tools fraudsters have to hack surveys have become increasingly sophisticated. This workshop will serve as an introduction to ways in which your survey may be hacked, factors that increase your risk of experiencing fraud in your results, and strategies for preventing and identifying fraud in your data. The workshop is especially suited to researchers who are interested in fielding surveys through online platforms such as REDCap, Qualtrics, or Survey Monkey.
