Public Sector

Employee screening, criminal investigations and site security are just a few examples of public sector requirements that need accurate data. Governments, councils and local authorities must ensure accurate data for records and background checking.

  • Versatile

    The list of requirements for checks and dataset access is long, and there’s a real risk of getting tied up with too many suppliers, creating more operational complexity.

  • Compliant

    Whichever type of check or investigation is being run, public sector compliance with regulations is paramount, as the mishandling of data could lead to hefty fines, court cases and job losses.

  • Fast

    Returning the right results is important, especially in an emergency or for work with tight timescales.
