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 (CARC) is currently developing a secure computing environment for such data. Researchers will be notified when this service becomes available.

Currently, CARC systems do not support the use or storage of sensitive data. CARC is in the process of building a secure computing environment. Until that environment is ready, if your research work includes sensitive data, including but not limited to HIPAA-, FERPA-, or CUI-regulated data, see our Secure Computing Compliance Overview or contact us at before using our systems.

For more information on the different types of sensitive data, see the USC IT Services Data Security page.
