We take your security of your data seriously, and implement very strong server and client side security protocols, as well as ensuring that what happens in-between cannot be intercepted.
ResearchStudies is hosted with WPEngine, a managed host selected specially for high processing speed and security standards, including disk protection, script detection, external penetration testing and daily backups.
All data are securely stored and accessible only to those that have been explicitly granted access. User role control means that you have full control over who can access, or edit, just about everything. Participant names (and other data) may be concealed for some users, and sensitive form data can be selectively hidden if necessary when sharing form data.
More broadly, data access restrictions comply with the Health Information Privacy Code (1994) and Good Clinical Practice guidelines (1996) for personal health information. Data are stored on a physically secured, fire-walled and SAS 70 Type II compliant server, and transmitted via SSL encryption. More information here.
We limit brute-force attacks, however recommend that you choose a strong and unique password to prevent malicious guessing of your password.
