I’m the Director of Assessments for a testing program that administers exams globally. We have a strong security plan in place for detecting anomalies in our exam data, and for locating our items on the Internet if they are leaked. These detection measures serve us well; however, we’re beginning to ask ourselves: “What more can we do to prevent security threats before they arise?” Agatha, even though you are not from Earth, your extraterrestrial wisdom has helped me and my colleagues immensely. So please, tell us what we should do to have stronger prevention!
