SDSC's Sherlock partners with Boise State University


12 Jun 2019 San Diego - The Sherlock Division at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego has partnered with Boise State University to provide a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant environment to protect the sensitive data needs of Idaho's metropolitan research university of distinction.

This partnership evolved due to Boise State's need to protect sensitive data stemming from its collaboration with St. Luke's Health System on a variety of research initiatives involving HIPAA data. SDSC's Sherlock team was a natural choice, as it has worked cooperatively with several academic institutions and medical centres in support of meeting their HIPAA compliance requirements.

"We are excited about this opportunity to partner with Boise State, and use our comprehensive HIPAA expertise and Cloud computing knowledge to facilitate the research projects Boise State has with St. Luke's", stated Sandeep Chandra, executive director of the Sherlock Division. "This partnership falls squarely within our wheelhouse, and we expect to collaborate with Boise State to include additional research opportunities that involve HIPAA data or any sensitive data requiring specialized security and systems protections."

"Research computing services in the Cloud requires our staff to directly support the research teams at St. Luke's", stated Boise State CIO and Associate Vice President Max Davis-Johnson. "Establishing this partnership with SDSC and UC San Diego allows Boise State to learn from an industry leader and focus on this research instead of procuring and maintaining new secure data storage and compute capability."

Added Boise State Interim Vice President, Division of Research and Economic Development Harold Blackman: "We are confident in SDSC's ability and expertise to meet the secure data management requirements and look forward to building upon this partnership."

SDSC's Sherlock Division, formerly called the Health Cyberinfrastructure (Health CI) Division, specializes in protecting various types of sensitive data. With the Division's secure Cloud services now being offered on premise through its Sherlock Cloud at SDSC as well as via Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure Cloud Services (Azure), Boise State can now capitalize on this expertise and leverage Sherlock's secure Cloud hosting service offerings in support of the wide range of researcher-led projects and use cases, according to Sandeep Chandra.
