It's the job of everyone at Socratic to keep your work safe at every layer. Learn here about the steps we take to protect your data, from encryption to access controls. We prioritize your data's security so you can focus on what matters most—your business.


  • Data ingress: Socratic supports encryption via HTTPS for all data being sent to Socratic systems, and strongly encourages all customers to only send data via HTTPS.

  • Data egress: All Socratic APIs supports sending data via HTTPS. Socratic dashboards only support HTTPS.

  • Encryption at rest: Where feasible, sensitive data is stored under encryption.

Physical protection

All Socratic servers are hosted on Amazon Web Services, which in turn employs industry standard protections. More information from AWS can be found here.


  • Permissioning: We restrict access to all Socratic servers to only those employees with a need to access. All servers employ role-based permissioning.

  • Firewall: All servers are protected via VPN. Socratic's VPN employs role-based permissioning.


Socratic employs several systems for monitoring and detecting potential threats. These systems are evaluated on an annual basis, at minimum, to ensure accuracy and completeness.

Privacy by design

All major new projects undergo Privacy Impact Assessments to determine any impacts of work on privacy, and appropriate steps for risk remediation.


  • Permissions: Logs of all permissions changes are retained for at least 90 days.

  • Data requests: Logs for all API- and UI-based requests for data are retained for at least 30 days.
