CyberSecOp, a cybersecurity consulting firm, also reviewed and confirmed that Proctortrack’s infrastructure, technology, security, and data privacy systems are safe and secure.
New York, NY (November 12, 2020) – Proctortrack by Verificient has partnered with CyberSecOp, a Stamford, CT and New York City based cybersecurity consulting firm, to build and deliver a data security and privacy awareness program focused on the needs of online proctoring. A series of webinars will be jointly conducted to better understand the needs of learners, faculties and educational institutions, and to share the latest developments in providing a remote proctoring experience in a secure and privacy-aware environment.
To enhance Proctortrack’s transparency to its users, the partnership will also include a comprehensive review of the data privacy aspect of the interaction between Proctortrack and its users’ computers and the trade-offs between exam integrity and the level of access needed by Proctortrack. The review findings will be included in the webinar series along with information on the lifecycle of data in Proctortrack and how it fits into the ecosystem of cybersecurity, infrastructure, technology, security, and data privacy. The webinars will also review how malware, viruses, trojans, worms, ransomware, backdoor bots, browser hijackers, spyware, and adware work and how Proctortrack safely defends against these and other malicious code infections.
“Access to test-takers’ computers is needed by design because Proctortrack’s mission is providing integrity in online learning and credentialing. After listening to our partners, institutions, and learners, we realize that there is a lot of misunderstanding about Proctortrack’s use of private data,” said Rajnish Kumar, CEO of Proctortrack. “Working with CyberSecOp will help to resolve these misunderstandings and better communicate the value we provide to our end users.”
Jeffrey Walker, CISO of CyberSecOp, said: “Proctortrack has provided access to their source code and executables for our review of Proctortrack’s end-user application technology so that we can identify any gaps and ensure data security for the company’s end users. It’s understandable that exam integrity solutions like Proctortrack can be perceived as encroaching on privacy during an examination. However, we have confirmed that the Proctortrack application only captures data in relation to the monitoring of the actual test being taken and is only active during the time of the examination. Proctortrack has no end-user data collection activity. No Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Personal Health Information (PHI), or Credit Card data is taken from any end-user applications or documents. The CyberSecOp team is excited to be engaged with Proctortrack — a proven exam integrity client side application solution — and to partner with them on this important cybersecurity awareness and education webinar series.”
