Office of Research Oversight
Research Information Security
The Research Information Security Program (RISP) within the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Research Oversight (ORO) conducts onsite Routine or For-Cause Information Security compliance assessments of all VHA facility research programs. In addition to the onsite reviews, RISP staff remotely manage reports of Information Security incidents and provide remote and onsite Technical Assistance as needed. The primary focus of the RISP’s oversight activities is to assist VHA research programs in enhancing and improving their facility Research Information Security Programs so that Veteran research subjects’ personal information and other VA research data are appropriately protected.
