Ivy Ivy is a secure computing environment for researchers consisting of virtual machines (Linux and Windows) and Jupyter Notebooks. Researchers can use Ivy to process and store sensitive data with the confidence that the environment is secure and meets HIPAA requirements.
Overview Ivy consists of two separate computing environments. Access to one environment does not automatically grant access to the others:
Virtual Machines JupyterLab Notebooks - Coming Soon! Data Transfer In/Out of Ivy HIPAA Compliance Coming Soon - Secure HPC Requesting Access University of Virginia tenure stream and academic general faculty, research faculty, research scientists, and postdoctoral associates may request an account on Ivy.
UVA School of Medicine Research Computing can assist medical researchers in both understanding what HIPAA compliance requires of their work, and how to implement technical solutions to achieve and verify such compliance.
Review & Assessment From a compliance perspective, RC offers three levels of review/assessment:
Security Plan - Having a security plan in place is important to your success at UVA School of Medicine. If your lab or department doesn’t have a plan in place Research Computing Information Security will be happy to help you develop such a plan.
Security Review - If you have a security plan in place already we can help you verify that your computing resources are functioning as documented in your security plan.
