Data Custodians require a robust, accredited, regulated and functional environment for the governance, control and management of sensitive data, and Research Users seek simple and secure access to sensitive data and associated tools.
The “Scalable Governance, Control and Management of FAIR Sensitive Research Data” project is a national collaboration to deliver a secure, trusted and scalable environment for data governance, control and management services for data custodians and secure remote data analysis environments for research users.
Such an environment is needed to overcome significant barriers to making sensitive data FAIR, providing assurances to other data custodians regarding confidential and secure data handling, and ensuring researchers comply with ethical and regulatory requirements.
The project will deploy and manage a proven technology called the Secure eResearch Platform (SeRP) Software Stack as a managed, nationally consistent service. The SeRP service will build trust between data custodians, researchers & their collaborators and enable data curation, linkage, extraction, sharing with access control, de-identification and analysis.
Who is this project for?
- Researchers dealing with sensitive data
- Research organisations
- Infrastructure providers
- Government (state and commonwealth)
- Health services
What does this project enable?
The SeRP service will lower barriers to making sensitive data FAIR by coalescing technology, processes & controls to build trust between data custodians, researchers & their collaborators.
