Building the infrastructure, expertise, and tools to meet the multifaceted needs of researchers using confidential data confronts challenges in cost, security and legality. To answer these challenges, the Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER) staffs and hosts the Cornell Restricted Access Data Center (CRADC). Since its inception in 1999, the CRADC has provided secure access to confidential research data and has become the Cornell University custodian of restricted access data sets. The endeavor to balance a resource-rich and highly-usable collaborative computing environment that also meets security requirements demands technological leadership as well as expert service related to a great variety of data providers and software packages. This presentation will describe how CISER facilitates this balance, via a synthesis of technology, expert service and tools to empower sanctioned and secure scientific research on restricted access data at Cornell University.
