IRB Technology Security Assessment

What Is It?

When the risk of using a specific technology for human subject research activities is unknown, the UIC Institutional Review Board (IRB) may require that a security assessment of the technology be performed. The Technology Solutions Information Security and Privacy Office works with investigators to perform a technology security assessment that can be provided as a response to the IRB.


To provide an assessment, all requested information in the IRB Technology Security Assessment form is required.
