The Stanford Cancer Institute Research Database (SCIRDB) provides cancer investigators with a secure environment to store their data. We implement measures for both physical and data security. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections when providing researchers to role-based access the data over the web. We continuously monitor and upgrade security procedures as necessary. We work with the Stanford University Privacy and Data Security Officer to comply with all HIPAA regulations as they pertain to a project.
