Supporting Research on Restricted Data

Time 04/24/17 04:30PM-05:30PM

Room Grand Ballroom Central/North

Session Abstract

Restricted data is data that is governed by laws, regulations, and contractual agreements. Increasingly front-line research involves or touches data that falls in that category. That creates pressure on institutions and organizations hosting the research from two angles:

  1. The data is valuable and as a result systems and organization hosting it become a target for attach.
  2. Because the data is restricted, funding agencies, organizations and companies with a stake in the data want assurance that proper measures are in place to safeguard the data; noncompliance can result in substantial fines.

In the summer of 2016, The University of Florida, with partner Tera Insights, completed a next-generation system that cost-effectively scales to a large number of small to medium research projects that need to work on restricted data with the ability to apply high-performance computing to the data processing and analysis. The issues around research on restricted data are not purely technical, but include a significant component of managing business processes.

This session will address four components:

  1. Institutional commitment
  2. The problem to be addressed from the university’s sponsored research business point of view.
  3. Manage the security and compliance of the systems and business processes.
  4. The underlying technology, including the Tera Insights solution for secure file storage, sharing, and processing.
