Keep your test secure and your reputation intact.
How do you get from “We should be doing that” to “We’ve implemented that” — especially with something as crucial as test security? Your exam programme’s value is no small thing. Those who earn your credential demonstrate a commitment to the highest professional standards. Preserving that value while maintaining candidate trust and protecting your reputation means understanding and skillfully navigating security risks. But how do you plan for the unknown?
Start by working with us, the market leader in securing exam programmes. From the creation of your first test question, through proctoring, and until the final scores are issued, we stay actively engaged in protecting your programme. We do that by pairing advanced technology with the industry’s largest security team to safeguard your complete testing landscape. We’ll help you identify the biggest threats, then develop a strategy to fight them — so you can breathe easier, knowing we’re right beside you.
Develop a plan with our Secure Testing Framework™.
Your testing programme was built with integrity. To preserve that integrity, you need a cohesive approach to security that considers every potential threat. Using our proven Secure Testing Framework, together we’ll develop a plan that integrates security into every element of exam development and delivery.
Using a 360-degree coverage model, we work to proactively detect and prevent misconduct before and during exams. On the rare occasions when someone successfully commits a fraudulent act, our investigative response team meticulously reconstructs what occurred to ensure appropriate action can be taken.

We prevent, detect, respond, and plan in the areas of risk management, delivery strategy, candidate experience, and test design for customer protection.
Protect exam content with smart publishing and delivery tools.
No matter what type of testing you do — Linear, CAT, or LOFT — or how often you publish content, our security measures preserve your exam content throughout its lifecycle. With our ExamDeveloper tool, your team can develop content collaboratively and securely. And rest assured: our certified proctors and thorough screening processes keep test delivery secure, extending the life of your exam content.
Verify identities with leading technology.
Confirming test-taker identities is about more than the test itself. It’s about protecting your industry and community through the value of your credential. That’s why we painstakingly verify the identity of every person who sits for an exam. Not only do we compare photo IDs and digital signatures in real time and against previous tests, but we can also use palm-vein biometric screening — unique to Pearson VUE — a non-invasive and highly accurate measure of identity. Whether your exam is delivered in a test centre or through OnVUE, we use the latest identity management technology to ensure your candidates are who they say they are.
Defend your data with expert cyber defenses.
Exam security is at the heart of every business decision we make. Those decisions are led by our dedicated and expansive team of cybersecurity experts, test security professionals, and special investigators. With more than 100 years of combined experience in test security, these seasoned professionals adhere to global security and privacy standards, using robust data analytics and forensics to safeguard your programme.
