Secure Research Facilities

Secure data and research on campus

In addition to the Federal Statistical Research Data Center, which offers access to microdata from several Federal agencies, IRiSS hosts a number of targeted research environments and resources to provide access to sensitive and secure data.  In cases where the security requirements of data-granting agencies do not align well with Stanford security policies, IRiSS can help.
