This is a legacy web page. The Trustworthy Research Environment and its ISO27001 Certified ISMS are now closed. If you need to access sensitive data at the University, please contact IT Services about using their Data Safe Haven.
The Trustworthy Research Environment is a highly secure data analytics resource operated by the Centre for Health Informatics, and hosted here on campus.
The TRE provides researchers with a secure place to store, analyse and process health data. Strict controls are in place to prevent unauthorised access to or inappropriate usage of the data. The TRE operations team also review all data exports from the TRE, and operate an ‘output checking’ service that aims to prevent any disclosure of confidential information. Information Governance support can also be provided, to help project teams complete data sharing agreements with their data controllers. We have produced guidance documents to help researchers manage their TRE projects, which can be downloaded below.
