SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER Emerging HIPAA and Protected Data Requirements for Research Computing at SDSC Ron Hawkins Director of Industry Relations / TSCC Program Manager April 23, 2014
SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER Objectives (for participation) Understand requirements for protected data processing on HPC systems Develop a roadmap for implementation at UCSD Focus on “services” not “projects” Understand how technology be used to implement protected data environments Contribute to understanding/solutions/best practices across the community
SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER What we are being asked for… dbGaP Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes Human genomic studies data administered by NIH Must apply and must comply with dbGaP Code of Conduct and “Security Best Practices” document Bottom line: Don’t put the data on the Internet HIPAA If you have to ask…
SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER SDSC Roles/Functions/Services Operate national HPC systems under XSEDE program (Trestles, Gordon, Comet) Operate a hybrid “hotel/condo” computing cluster (TSCC) for UC researchers Operate a co-location facility for UC campuses Operate several storage chargeback facilities (“Project”, “Cloud”, Commvault) Conduct sponsored research and operate various individual projects Work with biotech industry & external research institutes

SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER HIPAA PROJECTS/EXPERIENCE
Medicaid Integrity Group Data Engine The Center for Program Integrity’s Medicaid CI Platform FISMA-Certified, HIPAA-Compliant CMS System of Record Built in 2008/2009, Operations & Maintenance years of Medicaid claims and reference data (~100 TB) 26 families of Security Controls, over 200 controls, sub-controls Implements NIST SP and CMS ARS requirements Data Warehouse, Analysis, BI, and Case Management Tools 350+ Users (CPI, CMS Contractors, CMCS, OIG, DOJ, and Others) 100+ Concurrent Users, 500+ Algorithms, Daily Queries Connections to CMS Networks and Data Transfer Capabilities 9
Sherlock Cloud Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), includes compliance of the entire software architecture and management processes. Meets federal “Cloud First” requirements and flexibility goals Maintains the security and oversight aspects of a traditional managed services model Common standards, reliability, and compliance methods provide economies of scale and a shared management knowledge base. FISMA-certified, HIPAA compliant, and more open (Agile) environments separate projects and enforce appropriate compliance Undertaking FedRAMP Cloud Service Provider (CSP) certification, becoming a requirement in many government contracts and grants 10
Sherlock Cloud Suite of component cloud services: – Storage: File, Block, Database – Compute: Full virtualization; Support for Windows, Linux, and AIX – Shared Services: Backups, Authentication, Configuration Mgt., Ticketing, Logging, High-Speed File Transfer, Remote Access, DNS, etc. – Security: Project-customized firewalling, IDS, and monitoring – Networking: Non-blocking 10Gb networking end to end – Disaster recovery: Multi-site backup and failover capabilities Used by CMS, NIH, CalIT2, UCSF, UCOP and UCSD We Evaluate potential clients and only accept partners with a commitment to securely operating their environments. 11
SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER Protected Data on HPC Researchers value the HPC and storage services provided by SDSC Startup costs of dbGaP- or HIPAA-compliant “silos” are too much for most projects There are some workarounds but have limits: De-identified data Obtain consent and IRB approval for research use of human subject data (but not PII) “Projects” lack economies of scale, on-demand service, and elasticity
SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER What we are doing at present… Continuing to work with researchers on a project basis Continuing to evaluate and understand use cases Examining feasibility of one or more pilot projects in FY 2014 (7/1/14-6/30/15) – under auspices of UCSD’s “Research Cyberinfrastructure” program
SAN DIEGO SUPERCOMPUTER CENTER How do we? Understand requirements and best practices for protected data processing in HPC? Develop a roadmap for implementation on our campus? Develop “services” not “projects”? Deploy technology to implement protected data environments on shared infrastructure? Contribute to understanding/solutions/best practices across the community?
