Technology that optimizes
the use of sensitive data
The Secure Access Data Center (CASD) is an equipment which enables researchers, datascientists, consultants to access to detailed personal data, which is often severely restricted because of security reasons.
Currently over 1100 users access data through CASD.
CASD coordinates the implementation of a cross-border collaboration between secure access data center : French, British, German and Dutch.
USA to create a national secure access service
The report given to Congress calls for an extensive opening of administrative data for public statistics and research along with the creation of a national secure access service that will handle matching.
Recommendations include the removal of legal and regulatory barriers, the importance of transparency to the public with respect to data mobilization, implementing security, and the work done with these data.
Stressing the need to take into account technological innovation in terms of secure access, the commission in charge of the report was particularly interested in the CASD system.
In order to comply to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR EU-2016/679), a new draft of the law relating to computers, files and civil was published on 13 December 2017 and is currently under review by the French Parliamant.
What consequences will this new bill have on data access for scientific research ?
Since March 2016, CASD has made PMSI data (Program of Medicalization of Information Systems) available to ATIH authorized users (Technical Agency for Information on the Hospitalization of Health Data) in the best work and safety conditions possible.
