Helping your customers monitor criminal activity of employees to safeguard their enterprises from insider threats

We understand the level of responsibility your customers shoulder

The pressure is on for your customers to screen every job applicant carefully—but fill positions as quickly as possible. Once hired, they have no way of monitoring an employee’s criminal activity. An insider risk program isn’t in place yet, so their organizations are vulnerable to criminal activity. Sensitive data could be stolen. Fraud or embezzlement could impact their enterprise’s financial health and damage the company’s reputation. Employees could be victims of workplace violence.

Your customers may not be aware that the majority of inside criminal activity may go undetected. If an employee is incarcerated, they have no means of being notified. They’re carrying the weight of insider risk every day with no way to mitigate it.

With your help, your customers could picture a day like this

With access to the broadest incarceration database in the U.S., your customers can now do national background checks with ease for every potential new hire. Criminal convictions can be identified that may go undetected by traditional, less extensive, searches.

Post hire, they can continue to monitor all employees, knowing that ongoing monitoring is imperative to safeguarding their organization against insider risk. A recent study of 400,000 employees found that nearly 12% of the workforce was likely to be incarcerated at some point within the next five years. They now have the peace of mind knowing they will be automatically notified in real time when an employee is booked into custody. They know they’ll be ready to take appropriate action for their organization.

Your customers now have a proven, effective insider risk program in place that includes access you’ve provided to the nation’s most robust incarceration data network.
