Some data resources in the HRS are restricted meaning they are available only under special agreement because they contain sensitive and/or confidential information.
Accessing the Data
There are two ways to access the data: the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system and traditional licensing.
Nearly all restricted data can be accessed through the VDI system that allows users to remotely connect through a secure connection from their own desktop to a secure data enclave that houses the restricted data.
In some circumstances users may need to apply to obtain and use HRS restricted data on their own secure systems under the traditional license. If traditional licensing is required, we will let you know and help guide you through those additional steps.
