Increasingly researchers engaged in studying human subjects are looking to leverage IT and cloud-based tools and resources. At the same time, owners of large data repositories are imposing stricter rules and conditions on the use of their data. While institutional review boards have traditionally focused on research ethics when reviewing proposals, there is a growing need for expertise in the area of information security. This talk will illustrate how two institutions have successfully established a collaborative relationship between their IRBs and their information security offices as well as demonstrate how this relationship has enhanced regulatory oversight of research and facilitated the review process and compliance requirements for researchers.
