  • TITLE:  TSD: UiO's Services for Sensitive Data - From an IT-Security Perspective.
    SPEAKER:  Gard Thomassen 
    ABSTRACT:
    This talk describes how TSD at UiO fills the eInfrastructure needs of researchers who are collecting, generating, analysing, sharing and storing (often large amounts of) sensitive data. Since 2012 USIT (UiO's IT Department ) along with UiO researchers have invested considerable time, money and effort to build and improve TSD to provide services that are useful, secure and flexible. TSD (Tjeneste for Sensitive Data) translates into “Services for Sensitive Data”.

    TSD currently hosts >2 PiB of data from >530 research projects with > 2500 researchers. TSD also hosts a small HPC cluster and a means of collecting data through online questionnaires or from smart-phone apps. This talk will explain how USIT handles the fast and continuing development of the TSD research eInfrastructure in a sustainable way with focus on delivering flexible services for research and clinical analysis while still complying with very strict security regulations.

    Further, a few of the most significant features and smartphone applications connected to TSD will be discussed and demonstrated, and finally a glimpse into the future of TSD will be given.


16:00h Discussion


SPEAKER BIO
Gard Thomassen holds a PhD in Bioinformatics, and participated in the first exome and transcriptome sequencing of tumor/normal samples in Norway in 2010. In 2012 Thomassen became project leader for building a system for storage, analysis and collection of sensitive data (TSD) at the University of Oslo Centre for IT (USIT). TSD is now a national eInfrastructure for research on sensitive data. TSD also delivers IT infrastructure for clinical deep sequencing at the Oslo University Hospital. Today, Thomassen is the Head of the Division for Research Computing and Assistant Director at the USIT at the University of Oslo, Norway.
