Office of Research Oversight
Research Information Security
The Research Information Security (RIS) Workgroup within the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Research Oversight (ORO) conducts onsite and remote compliance assessments of VHA facility research programs. In addition to these assessments, the RIS Workgroup remotely manages reports of Information Security incidents and provide remote and on-site Technical Assistance as needed. The primary focus of the RIS Workgroup's oversight activities is to assist VHA research programs in enhancing and improving their facility Research Information Security practices so that Veteran research subjects’ personal information and other VA research data are appropriately protected.
