Restricted Data environments (RDENs)
RDENs allow controlled, secure access to sensitive health data for approved individuals
Restricted Data Environments (RDENs) allow data to be stored, queried, analyzed and shared within a secure, closed environment by approved researchers. A strong security and policy framework is used to defend against cyberattacks and misuse of data, including:
Multi-layered defense technologies
Next generation firewalls, network segregation, and separate physical hardware enable layered infrastructure security.
Sensitive data is transmitted using industry standard encryption technologies.
RDEN access control uses multi-factor authentication and permitted only via VPN
Automated intrusion detection and prevention systems which run 24/7
Trusted users can import code and packages from pre-approved sources, giving them the flexibility they need while defending against malware and other attacks
Any form of data export out of the secured environment is controlled by a technical isolation layer and requires administrative approval
Anti-virus/anti-malware in place to monitor and isolate detected threats.
