The UK's Digital Curation Centre has recently developed DMPOnline, a web-based service that guides researchers through the process of writing a structured and standardised data management plan, mapped to a wide range of major research funding agencies. Our project seeks to augment the DMPOnline tool with an information risk management tool that would assist data managers in the development and maintenance of formal Information Security Management Systems in line with the ISO-27001:2005 international standard for information security. Since the DMPOnline is currently a simple checklist of questions we aim to refine this model. This project will assess the viability of creating an extensible architecture for data management planning through the use of DDI (an established metadata standard) and related tooling. A pre-existing open source DDI 3.1 registry and editors will be extended, allowing for the creation of semantically rich project-specific representations of data management plans through a DDI broker, providing the basis of interoperability with a set of data management services. We hope to demonstrate the value of data management planning in the provision and maintainance of effective information security.
