Data Stewards are the individuals responsible for the moving of data to and from the secure remote desktop environment. A Data Steward’s environment can access the internet, local printers, and network file shares. They are able to copy data to and from a local system, and mount file servers in order to do so. All research projects must have their own appointed Data Steward.


Researchers are the users conducting research studies and analyzing data in the secure environment. Researchers’ environments are not able to access the internet, local printers, or network file shares. Researchers must contact a Data Steward for the extraction of data as they are not able to move data to or from the machine.


It is required that all intended users for each project have their own HawkID.
