Developing Survey Systems in a Restricted Security Environment

Mason Katherine,  Sikes Nathan,  Place Carol


As massive amounts of data are being collected without the knowledge of the vast majority of citizens, at home and abroad, the U.S. government has taken extraordinary steps in trying to protect the personal data that is electronically collected as the citizenry becomes enlightened and concerned about how their personal data is being stored and used. This paper, developed by computer professionals at RTI International who conduct surveys for the U. S. federal government as well as other levels of government and private sources, explores the methods and techniques as well as pros and cons for helping secure confidential data. Additionally, the paper discusses: · the basic definitions of the security requirements needed to protect private data; · handling some of the challenges related to accessibility, implementation of software solutions, and data flow in a high security environment; and · some of the tradeoffs inherent in this environment.
