Title:Trusted CI webinar: NCSA Experience with SOC2 in the Research Computing Space
Author(s):Withers, Alex
Trusted CI
SOC2 Type 2
Abstract:As the demand for research computing dealing with sensitive data increases, institutions like the National Center for Supercomputing Applications work to build the infrastructure that can process and store these types of data. Along with the infrastructure can come a host of regulatory obligations including auditing and examination requirements. We will present NCSA’s recent SOC2 examination of its healthcare computing infrastructure and how we ensured our controls, data collection and processes were properly documented, tested and poised for the examination. Additionally, we will show how other research and educational organizations might handle a SOC2 examination and what to expect from such an examination. From a broader perspective, the techniques and lessons learned can be applied to much more than a SOC2 examination and could potentially be used to save time and resources for any audit or examination. Speaker Bio: Alex Withers is an Assistant Director for Cyber Security and the Chief Information Security Officer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). Additionally, he is the security co-manager for the XSEDE project and NCSA’s HIPAA Security Liaison. He is also a PI and co-PI for a number of NSF-funded cybersecurity projects.
