Secure Research Environment

The Secure Research Environment (SRE) is a secure environment that mitigates the risks of working with ePHI (electronic personal health information) and other types of high risk data.  The SRE 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 SRE 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.
