Global Screening From Cisive

100 Percent Configurable Global Platform

Acquiring background screening information in over 200 countries and territories means navigating unique regional demands. Our global background screening program requires a dedicated focus to in-country process, procedure, and compliance, with an emphasis on an exceptional applicant and client experience.

Cisive’s global platform integrates country-by-country, rules-based logic into our report production system. We maintain an electronic library of country- and lead-specific forms and procedures to assist our clients in making compliant decisions. By systematically presenting these forms to the candidate at the onset of the process, our clients realize a significantly decreased time service and a legally compliant process. Our technology is 100 percent configurable and supports multiple languages in our portal, along with translated forms.

eSecure Global® Proprietary Technology

Cisive relies on our proprietary, rules-based workflow system to ensure that correct and legally compliant country forms are presented as needed. Our global network of research agents is constantly monitored for thoroughness, quality, and time-service levels to supplement our direct online access to courts where available. All of our research agents receive assignments and return results through our secure proprietary communication software, eSecure Global. 

We are the only consumer reporting agency with an HR-XML interface from Cisive to in-country researchers and back!

Cisive’s global solution delivers:

  • Comprehensive country requirements knowledge
  • A configurable client portal
  • Centralized investigation/report system
  • Robust quality control and reverification processes
  • Around-the-clock investigation time-service model
  • Global PII protection — Cisive rejects a home-based worker model
  • A closed-loop electronic connection from client to country researcher
  • The highest performance standards and most-qualified single-source solution

eSecure Global® ensures that all information is encrypted as it transitions electronically through the background investigation, reducing manual data entries and enhancing speed for minimal turn time.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is scheduled to go into effect on May 25, 2018 and applies to all companies processing the personal data of data subjects residing in the EU, regardless of the company’s location.   The aim of the GDPR is to protect the privacy of all EU citizens and to prevent data breaches in today’s increasingly data-driven world.  

Cisive will contractually assume data controller responsibility for our clients in the background screening process and provide indemnification.  We have robust policies and procedures and a commitment to comprehensive global compliance.  

Senior Manager’s Regime (SMR)

The Senior Managers Regime (SMR) is part of the UK financial regulation introduced by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and is aimed at increasing personal accountability of senior level people in the financial services industry and to reduce consumer risk. The SMR covers both domestic and international firms with UK operations.

The FCA’s expanded scope of SMR requirements will go into effect May 2018, and extends beyond the banking industry to include insurers and solo-regulated firms.  Individuals working in a ‘Senior Management Function’, as defined by the FCA, must be approved by the FCA before taking on the responsibilities of the role. In addition, firms will need to ensure the suitability of the Senior Manager by completing a ‘fit and proper’ assessment.

Cisive is prepared for the extended SMR regulations and will contractually support our clients as a data controller in the background screening process.  As a data controller, we will stand alongside our clients and assume responsibility for implementing and managing employee screening procedures in compliance with GDPR.
