ELSIE uses advanced techniques to guarantee that patients’ data are secure and private. Furthermore, ELSIE's patented workflow relies on state-of-the-art authentication, encryption and anonymity strategies. In addition to using the latest technologies to secure data transmission and storage, ELSIE's data security and privacy relies on a private and personal device: the ELSIE key.
ELSIE is ultra-secure in what concerns privacy and confidentiality of personal data. It strictly follows the latest best practices on data storage and security, not only obeying but indeed surpassing existing legal requirements.
- Secure Data Storage: ELSIE data are encrypted and stored in a certified data centre with strict backup policies.
- Controlled Data Access: Genomic data can only be accessed after the patient has given express consent for the purpose of producing a medical report.
- Full Data Anonymity: The patients' genomic data can only be linked to their personal information when their unique ELSIE Key is provided.
