The SPN has developed SafeSpace, which is a new model for creating a safe setting from a room for secure access to datasets for research purposes. SafeSpace requires the use of a SafeCube, which provides the IT equipment and other services necessary for secure dataset access to different Data centres (the same as SafePod). The SafeCube contains:

Supporting policies surround the creation and use of a room as a SafeSpace, which must be followed. A dedicated room is not required for SafeSpace as SafeSpace policies only apply when the SafeCube is switched on
It is anticipated that a SafeSpace can be set up at a researcher's organisation and in some circumstances from their home.
