About the Security of Submitted Audio

This applies only to trainings provided by Drs. Baumann and Kolko. We recommend that all trainees discuss the security of their audio upload systems with their trainers and IT staff.

Our upload website is designed by the University of Pittsburgh’s Office of Academic Computing (OAC) to encrypt all traffic. Trainees are able to connect to the website and enter account (email address) and password information. After log in, there is a control that they can select to find an audio file to upload to our server which will allow them to simply click and upload.

OAC secure servers are encrypted and under a security agreement with UPMC so that confidential, HIPAA protected documents and audio files can be uploaded securely. This UPMC server is accessible via UPMC staff permissions. OAC documents all file names that are uploaded and sends alerts to AF-CBT staff via email when a file has been uploaded. All email alerts include the account (email address) doing the transfer as well as the name of the file that was transferred. OAC also sends the trainee an email to the account (email address) to confirm that the file was successfully transferred.

The secure website is a “one way transfer” site only, with no reverse downloading capability.

What Is AF-CBT?

Alternatives for Families: a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT) is a trauma-informed, evidence-based treatment (EBT) designed to improve the relationship between children and caregivers in families involved in arguments, frequent conflict, physical force/discipline, child physical abuse, or child behavior problems.
