Know Your Employee Solutions
You, as an organization, are the sum of what your employees do, irrespective of whether they build products and systems, or provide services and solutions. Your success, reputation, worth, and the overall integrity of your assets, physical, digital and human, is also tied to what they say and the actions they take on your behalf, or how they behave on your turf, and beyond it. It is therefore imperative to know your employee and be cognizant of what that employee brings to the table.
Most employers require potential employees to present identification that indicates they are who they say they are. It is often treated as a mere formality, but it should not be, especially not in customer-facing organizations, when an employee’s actions can have safety or security considerations for others.
We provide the tools that allow you to quickly verify identities of individuals, check their documentation and the validity of that documentation, and provide any available conviction/arrest history of a potential licensee in operational real time.
Our tools, systems and solutions allow you, as an employer, to ensure that the your employees are who they say they are, first by checking an employee’s state or federal identification to verify the ID’s authenticity and then utilizing our Facial Recognition tools to verify that his or her identity is a match to that document.
We then give employers the tools to quickly access available demographic information through the CID, our Composite Intelligence Database, about potential employees. This also helps you answer this question: Is There Anything In Their Known Background That Disqualifies Them From Being Employed By You.
Our products and modules also help in other ways.
- We provide access to what should soon become the world’s largest private, encrypted, and law enforcement-verified database of felons, arrestees and sex offenders.
- We give subscribers the ability to run facial recognition scans of any individual they are looking to employ against a law enforcement-verified database of criminals numbering in the millions — a database that includes known thieves, drug and human traffickers, gang members, murderers, terrorists, and more than one million registered sex offenders.
- We also provide employers with the option to run a credit check on an individual, and give them the ability to check for offenses like DUIs/DWIs.
- Our data is based on data feeds from about 2,000 different jurisdictions of verified law enforcement data at the city, county, state level, and federal or international correctional or wanted data.
- We provide access to DARPA-commissioned Department of Defense-developed Facial Recognition software.
- We provide a secure, convenient mobile app that allows your HR Administrator (if provided access) or Security Officer to run an immediate scan on a potential employee suspicious with a couple of clicks.
In addition, we help you continuously monitor employees and their performance, and also help them work more efficiently by proving them with the tools to track and log transactions, incidents and events. This helps your employees create a digital audit trail that can be revisited to establish a picture of an event, whenever necessary, and can also be utilized by investigators for any forensic analysis of an incident.
Why is all this necessary?
This one’s easy — it’s necessary if you believe it’s necessary to protect your organization’s reputation and professional integrity, and to prevent any potential financial, legal or criminal ramifications stemming from neglecting to take requisite precautions to protect yourself and your customers.
While the financial services and legal sectors typically require licensing and certification of employees in any case, many other sectors see high staff turnover or seasonal employment, especially in cash intensive industries where employees are paid by the hour. One of the focal points of a 2009 report by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force), an independent inter-governmental body that develops policies to protect the global financial system against money laundering and terrorist financing, was on employee complicity facilitating money laundering.
Among the indicators of employee complicity they talked about were
- Contact between patrons and staff outside of the property.
- Large sums of cash from unexplained sources.
- Checks issued to a family member of the person.
- Multiple individuals sending funds to a single beneficiary.
- Transferring funds into third party accounts.
- Use or third parties to undertake wire transfers.
- Use of an intermediary to make large cash deposits.
- Use of gatekeepers, e.g. accountants and lawyers to undertake transactions
- Use of remittance agents to move funds across borders.
- Wire transfers from third parties in tax haven countries.
One of the major reasons listed for problems with employees?
Inadequate systems, inadequate background checks, and poor employee training.
