Data Prerequisites

Overview of Data Prerequisite to add data to Nero Environment

Nero is available to any researcher working at Stanford.

However, in order to use Nero for High Risk and PHI data, the researcher must go through a Data Risk Assessment (DRA) for each new data set brought into the environment. Stanford Information Security Office (ISO) and the University Privacy Office (UPO) evaluate projects based on all applicable security and privacy laws and regulations as well as University policy. Once the DRA is approved, the dataset can be brought on the Nero platform.
