BTW, this famously was done on punchcards in the past. Essentially when you collect your data in text files on a central hardened computer, you can easily write programs to answer all of your statistical questions. Even if we are talking about Terabytes of data, the programs will run faster than you can write them.

So statisticians can submit their programs to that air gapped computer and get back the results.
