Data Security and Audit features in Atlas


(Selva Muthu Kumaran Sathappan) #1

Hello Everyone,

We are setting up OMOP CDM and Atlas for analysis of our data. I would like to know about the data security and audit features available in Atlas. Through @anthonysena I came to know about access rights feature in Atlas, can you please help me in understanding audit features available in Atlas

The way I have put my question might be non-technical but I am looking to know how this can be implemented technically. I can forward the response/check with tech experts to get this done.

  1. Data Security - I came to know that we can set up user authentication and role configuration based on user profile to provides restricted access (ex: New cohort button enabled/disabled etc) to the Atlas platform. Is there anymore features for data security that are present in Atlas? You can also suggest us as to how we can make it more secure?

  2. Audit Features - Can you please explain about the audit features available in Atlas? Should I be relying on any logs to find out the user behavior? Ex: user A logged in yesterday and generated a cohort, User B logged in at 10’o clock today and created a concept set. Can you please let me know where can I find this info? Let’s say we have an Administrator and from where he can find this info?

  3. Data Export - I understand that we can’t download any individual level data from Atlas. Even if I would like to generate any Summary data (Cohort definition, Descriptive statistics etc), can it be download only after Executing R script? Is it possible to download the summary statistics/cohort generation result from Atlas?

Thanks for your time and help

I don’t think there is such option available apart from retrieving the queries to run using R.

@anthonysena, if you would like to add something to it.
