What is a Secure Computing Environment?

Summary

ePHI (electronic personal health information) and other types of high-risk data requires the need for the Secure Computing Environment (SCE).

Body

ePHI (electronic personal health information) and other types of high-risk data require the need for the Secure Computing Environment (SCE).

Overview: 

The Secure Computing Environment (SCE) is a secure environment that mitigates the risks of working with ePHI (electronic personal health information) and other types of high-risk data. The SCE eases the burden on the researcher of having to configure and assure that their computational work environment has been configured with the appropriate security controls and to minimize the risk of exposing high risk data. The SCE makes it easier for researchers to implement necessary safeguards for research that is subject to regulatory or compliance requirements, including but not limited to, HIPAA, FISMA, Personal Information Protection Act of Illinois and other grant-specific regulations.

Applicability: 

  1. Technology Solutions only provides the secure computing platform but the user acts as the data custodian for their sensitive data.
  2. The requestor must read and adhere to the SCE Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) mentioned https://uofi.app.box.com/s/hp554su7cmec0y4apge7g4yukxpnbkvo
  3. Technology Solutions will not provide admin-level access to users. Any changes to our policy should be requested through our web form.
