Researcher Facing Track, February 2022

1p ET/ 12p CT/ 11a MT/ 10a PT/ 8a HT

Sensitive Data in Research Computing – HIPAA support at the University of Utah
Presented by Wayne Bradford & Anita Orendt, University of Utah

The ever-evolving federal regulations on sensitive research data has put research facilitation in the unique position of having to provide cutting edge innovation while meeting compliance requirements from funding agencies. Setting up an enclave or secured space for computation, research surveys and databases is forcing all of us to rethink our campus cyberinfrastructure. This month in the Research-Facing call we will hear from one institution that has a HIPPA protected environment on premise. Please join us for a discussion on planning, policies, security controls, services and architecture used to support research with sensitive data.

Researcher-Facing Track Call, Jan 2022

Saying No! When, Why, and How to Say No to Researchers
A community conversation hosted by the Researcher-Facing Steering Committee
Thursday January 13, 2022 1pm ET/ 12pm CT/ 11am MT/ 10am PT/ 8am HT

These days, most of us have way too much to do and too little time! When we have several demands on our resources it’s important to have some areas where we can say no. With the new year upon us, should your resolution be to say “NO” more often? On our January Researcher-Facing Track call, let’s talk about what kind of requests we say no to, and why. How can we protect our staff without damaging customer service? What are you doing to redirect support to other teams while keeping track of the shifting research needs at your institutions? Please share with us what you are saying no to and why in this survey. The survey results will help fuel the January 13th conversation.
