Working with sensitive data that is governed by compliance regulations comes with additional requirements and restrictions that must be taken into consideration. The Center for Advanced Research Computing is currently developing a secure computing environment for such data. Later in 2021, full details and system specifications will be made available on this page and on the Secure Computing user guide pages.
Currently, CARC systems do not support the use or storage of sensitive data. If your research work includes sensitive data, including but not limited to HIPAA-, FERPA-, or CUI-regulated data, see our Secure Computing user guides or contact us at email@example.com before using our systems. For more information on the different types of sensitive data, see the USC IT Services Data Security page.
