Main security measures

Security at the core of CASD know-how

Granting access to confidential data is of the utmost importance for studies and research. Detailed personal data require a high level of security to avoid unwarranted dissemination or misuse (by an unauthorized third party) and, therefore, makes infrastructures, tools and systems allowing access critical.

To address these issues, CASD has put together its set of technologies for data dissemination which guarantees security and technically prevents any data file export.

CASD used all its know-how to create a secure data hosting setup compliant with the French regulation pertaining to the processing and dissemination of data protected by secrecy.

The party wishing to disseminate its confidential data can :

  • Have their data hosted at CASD;
  • Name the authorized persons to access the data (for the amount of time the party will have chosen);
  • Instruct CASD as to who will be authorized to have an SD-box;
  • Define the confidentiality rules.

This is in order to benefit from the guarantee of high level security for their data through confinement to avoid dissemination, while maximizing user comfort in terms of ergonomics and IT efficiency.

CASD processing has been authorized by the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés, CNIL (CNIL – Delibération number 2014-369). The ISO 27001 is presently in its final stages.
