Learnosity’s enterprise-grade data security protects the information of millions of learners around the world.
Attention to details matter. 90% of the time, a breach or an exploit happens because something really simple was missed or one simple change was made that caused the problem. This can be as simple as receiving an email and mistaking an illegitimate request as a legitimate one. Or accepting the default setting when making some change to a running system. It's never foolproof, but paying attention to the details of things really does matter.
Helping the team, and growing with them. No one person can do and know everything. Everyone in history is standing on the shoulders of those before us. Recognizing that and helping to lift others up and sharing my experiences makes me happy.
I like puzzles and problems. But many puzzles don't lead to legal issues. I've always preferred to share and protect, than break and exploit. Plus you can more freely talk about what you do without fear. :D

Don't collect it if you don't need it. We have designed a system that only collects data that is the minimum to provide the service. We don't need to know the name/age/gender of any of the students answering questions - we just need to know what they answered. It keeps it simpler, and reduces security risk.
Seeing the awesome ways that people use our technology. The most recent example of this was a program of learning to teach media literacy, which is more relevant now than it every has been, to teach children (and adults) how to discern #realnews from #fakenews.
Not again, no ;) My hacking exploits were limited to reverse engineering the copy prevention on Commodore 64 games when I was a kid and had more free time and no money. I had some successes and many failures – but in the end, this was what drove my interest and passion in software development.
As digital interactions increase, so does the flow of data and the risk of its misuse. But edtech can respect and protect learner privacy. John Kleeman, EVP at Learnosity & Questionmark, explains how.
