Screening & Testing

Screening & Testing

Security companies know that pre-employment background screening and verification is critical to every organization's risk profile – not just to companies hiring security officers. While screening is among the security solutions offered by the largest security companies, International Security Associates (ISA), as a founding member of the S2Verify Screening Technology Group, offers clients the competitive edge of Actionable Screening Intelligence (ASI) technology, created by the developers of some of the largest government, Fortune 500, and nonprofit screening programs.

Actionable Screening Intelligence (ASI) is a new search algorithm that uses advanced artificial intelligence to quickly analyze data from multiple sources and interpret results based on pre-set criteria. The information that drives decision-making is presented for easy reference on our Candidate Management Dashboard, enabling clients to quickly identify risk and focus on quality candidates.

Employment Background Screening

With our ASI technology, companies can count on high quality results and fast turnaround, with the added value of improved recruiter productivity and reduced screening costs. Screening packages are customized to the client, by job function as needed. Search capabilities include:

  • Name and address search, including alternative sources and public records that may reveal addresses not supplied by applicant
  • Social security number validation
  • Credit checks from Equifax, TransUnion, or Experian
  • County criminal checks performed directly at the county court house
  • State criminal history checks in states that provide online access to conviction records
  • Federal criminal history checks for conviction records of crimes such as kidnapping, drug trafficking, bank robbery, embezzlement, or counterfeiting
  • National criminal database searches that may reveal offenses in jurisdictions purposely excluded from an application by a candidate
  • National sex offender registry
  • Government security and terrorist watch lists, including individuals or companies linked to terrorist activity and denied, debarred, sanction, most wanted, and fugitive lists
  • Motor vehicle record history within the state where an individual holds a license
  • Employment reference checks through Human Resources departments or supervisors
  • Education reference checks to validate degrees or GED certificates from accredited schools or universities
