Working with sensitive medical data is risky – and securing it is a difficult problem. The Secure Medical Research Workspace (SMRW) project is a collaborative R&D effort involving RENCI, the NC TraCS Institute, the School of Information and Library Sciences (SILS), and UNC Hospitals to address the problem of keeping medical data safe so it can be used by researchers. The SMRW team aims to develop a secure environment where researchers can work with sensitive patient medical data with a minimum of inconvenience. Three members of RENCI’s SMRW development team will provide an overview of the problem as well as the technology under development designed to create a secure cyber environment for medical research.
