You already knew that, but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded. Whether you want to do a complete review of your practices, codify your policies, or prove to your stakeholders that you care about your exam validity, Caveon has the test security guidance you need.


To keep your car running, you see a mechanic. To keep your health in good condition, you visit the doctor. To keep your test program secure, you need to…

Know What You Don’t Know

We get it, you are busy. Moreover, you can’t be an expert in everything. That’s okay. The problem is, your test security is too important to be overlooked, given cursory attention, or put on the back burner. When the stakes are this high and you need assessment program help, let the experts do the heavy lifting.

Cover Your Behind

When it comes to security, it’s critical to identify the risks you face, in what areas, and at what potential cost. Every testing program has its own unique security concerns. A formal review of your program will provide the necessary insight for you to cover your behind (and anything else you don’t want exposed).

Get Actionable Feedback

Like any good self-improvement exercise, test security guidance should be more than isolating and picking apart your flaws. For every potential security vulnerability an expert helps you identify, you should expect a security recommendation to address it. Better still, the strategy should be tailored, practical, and proven to work within other similar testing programs.

Be Fully Prepared

Don’t wait for an emergency to ask yourself what to do in an emergency. If you are like most testing programs, many of your test protocols and practices are not formally codified. It may not seem important now, but you’ll want to be ready with a security plan that brings all your test security policies, procedures, and materials together in one place.

Rest Easy

From planning to incident response, legal protections, and back again, taking a formal look at the efficacy of your test security will help you catch some higher-quality Z’s at night. You’ll no longer have to toss and turn mulling over hypothetical scenarios in your head. You’ll have your plans on paper—done and dusted—and the peace of mind knowing that you are prepared for any security threats that dare come your way.
