Best practices: Science DMZ and research data center

Combination View Flat View Tree View
Threads [ Previous | Next ]
Idaho State University is building a dedicated university-wide Research Data Center following a Science-DMZ model. Construction will begin fairly soon and while the contractors will be renovating the facility space we will be building policy.

Can you help me by providing examples of written best practices or policies for data center security, management, and access control? Instead of writing from scratch we would very much like to adopt existing best practices from other institutions far ahead of us on this.

I can be emailed directly also at

Thank you very much.
