Data has been dubbed ‘the new natural resource’. The challenge is to ensure it can be exploited effectively and creatively while remaining immune from hacking, tampering, theft and corruption. Located deep underground in Central London, the Cocidius Secure Data Lab is more than a match for the task, as confirmed by its accreditation as a Police Assured Secure Facility (PASF).
To protect the data it hosts:
- The lab has no IT link with the outside world
To use this completely self-contained facility, clients have to visit the site in person.
- Stringent controls cover physical entry into the lab
As well as access to its IT system and the individual datasets it holds.
- Every user and staff member undergoes a rigorous vetting and Security Clearance process
To identify any potential security threats or risks.
Everything we do in the lab is designed to provide total reassurance for the data’s owners. Each hosting arrangement is covered by a comprehensive Service Level Agreement addressing issues such as data protection and sharing.
We provide the software and hardware platform that’s right for each project, plus additional research and technical manpower where required. A key feature is our ability to combine and anonymise datasets, with the owners’ permission, to provide a wider data pool for projects undertaken by the lab.
