Does an EPA Software Platform Keep All My Data Protected?

It's critical for EPAOs to protect their software applications and platforms. Find out if an EPA software platform keeps all data safe.

The growing risk of cybercrime has led many End-Point Assessment Organisations (EPAOs) to take active measures to safeguard their valuable data. For EPAOs, protecting the data stored in software applications and platforms is critical. Not only do they need absolute confidence that hackers won’t be able to steal, delete, or encrypt apprentices’ data to prevent their grades from being adversely affected, but personal information must, by law, be secure from unlawful access.

For EPAOs, End-Point Assessment (EPA) software adds real value to the assessment process, improving efficiency and reducing costs. So, can you be confident that your chosen EPA software solution provides robust protection for your critical data?

epaPRO: Robust Security To Keep Your Data Safe

Using the following security tools and features, epaPRO is protected from hackers and spammers so you can be confident that your documents are safe from deletion, corruption, and encryption. You can ensure you and your contacts won’t be subjected to a barrage of spam email that threatens the integrity of your EPA process:

  • epaPRO has been designed with Laravel Security tools, which include robust measures to guard against hackers.
  • External penetration testing is conducted twice yearly by an accredited independent expert.
  • Security patches are installed as soon as a new threat becomes known.
  • the platform infrastructure is monitored scrupulously by a hosting partner who has access to the latest cyber threats.
  • Critical data is stored in robust UK data centres for up to seven years for audit purposes.

A Commitment To European Regulations

At Skilltech Solutions, we also recognise the importance of Data Protection/GDPR compliance and take our responsibilities seriously.

Data security has long been recognized in Europe, which is why the Data Protection Directive was implemented in 1995, several years before internet security became a key concern.

However, the strong foundations established in the last century opened the way to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Published in the European Union in 2016, GDPR laid down strict expectations for the storage and processing of data in its many forms. In the UK, these regulations were assimilated into The Data Protection Act 2018 to ensure that the key principles were retained after the country’s exit from the European Union.

It is because of our commitment to incorporating data leak protection software into epaPRO that EPAOs can have absolute confidence that their critical data is secure and safe from hackers, spammers, and other cybercriminals.
