Many background screening companies perform cybersecurity and IT compliance audits, including SOC audits. Pre-employment screening of candidates is a widely accepted practice for many companies. The background screening can include compiling criminal records, past employment verification, and credit score of an individual. In order to process the background check, companies require Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from the applicant, including the applicant’s name and social security number. Implementing a robust compliance program can be used as a competitive advantage. Increasingly, background screening companies are asked to implement and maintain a compliance program that demonstrates their commitment to a strong system of internal controls. Control frameworks (such as SOC 1, SOC 2, ISO 27001, etc.) are widely accepted and help background screening companies differentiate themselves from their competitors by demonstrating their commitment to maintaining a strong IT compliance program.
