Global Screening: Close Security Gaps and Reduce Risks

Tuesday, February 17
15:45-16:35
Breakout 2

Global screening helps prevent employee fraud, ensure compliance, and reduce legal risks, but 85% of employers aren’t conducting them. Learn critical global screening steps and how to avoid common mistakes.

Eighty-five percent of organizations have a critical security gap that leaves them open to risks for employee fraud, security issues, and legal liabilities – they are not conducting global background checks. Businesses are sourcing candidates globally for offices around the world. Understanding and verifying these candidates' employment and education experience as well as other facets of their backgrounds is critical, but screening candidates on a global scale is complex and fraught with pitfalls. The type of data available to be verified, employment laws, privacy regulations, process requirements, and cultural views of screening all vary drastically from country to country and these differences can impact how screening is conducted. This session identifies common mistakes and how to avoid them and explores how to best navigate global requirements.
