Advancing access to restricted data: compliance, regulations, continuous monitoring….Oh my!!

Presenter 1
Janet Heslop
Cornell University, Cornell Institute of Social and Economic Research (CISER)

In this session I will demonstrate the restricted access research computing infrastructure (CRADC- Cornell Restricted Access Data Center) that CISER (Cornell Institute of Social and Economic Research) has built to serve Cornell social science researchers and their collaborators worldwide. Based upon a local private-cloud service running on state-of-the-art computing systems that provides researchers (individual or teams) an environment where they can perform basic-to-complex highly secure computing tasks. The private-cloud service is accessible via remote access according to the researcher’s data provider agreement. In this presentation I will show how and why CRADC’s clientele continues to grow exponentially; discuss compliancy, regulations and standards based upon a specific data provider agreement; and review the need for continuous monitoring. Topics will additionally provide a description of the infrastructure, the value of shared economies of scale, the straightforward access to restricted data, and the administration/support services required to keep CRADC known as “the gateway to restricted data” at Cornell University.
