Employers Take a Proactive Approach to Employee Safety and Corporate Security with InfoMart’s Continuous Criminal Monitoring

March 3, 2021 – Atlanta, GA – InfoMart, a leading provider of global employee background screening and identity solutions, has launched a continuous criminal monitoring service that advances the industry standard with a compliance-driven algorithm. This monitoring tool notifies employers as soon as a new arrest is entered into police systems across the country and has the ability to provide notice of future court filings. As a result, InfoMart’s continuous criminal monitoring program empowers companies to take a proactive approach to safety, cybersecurity, and risk mitigation.

With 1 in 3 employees reporting that they don’t feel safe at work, and 40% suggesting they don’t trust that their employers are prepared for a major event, continuous criminal monitoring offers priceless peace of mind.

Cybersecurity Insiders states that 68% of organizations feel they are vulnerable to insider attacks. Since 2016, insider risks continue to rise, and Forrester predicts that insider data breaches will increase by 8% in 2021. Employers can now take an affordable measure to monitor the criminal activity of employees, reducing the threat of insider criminal activity.

Backed by trusted, up-to-the-minute data, this in-demand background screening solution offers insight into criminal behavior that occurs after a candidate joins a company. In the process, it benefits both the employee and the employer.

Benefits for employees:

  • A safer, more secure work environment
  • Proof an employer takes safety seriously
  • An informed HR department that can potentially provide support after an incident
Benefits for employers:

  • Timely insight into criminal activity post-hire for trust, security, and safety issues
  • Opportunity to safely expand job pool to include candidates with prior convictions, supporting second chances
  • Ongoing security of employees, customers, and assets
  • Additional layer of security against insider cybersecurity threats

InfoMart’s proprietary algorithm enhances the compliance protocols typically found in this type of monitoring product, an industry-first protection for employers and employees. Results are returned via an actionable consumer report, and the process accounts for California’s fresh consent requirements and for state and local laws that don’t allow use of arrest information.

“Every business has uncovered a situation where an employee was arrested after being hired. In an effort to provide truly end-to-end risk mitigation to our clients, we were looking for a solution that went a step further than annual rescreening,” explained InfoMart’s Chief Product Officer, Erica Clausen-Lee. “Continuous criminal monitoring was the clear choice. It keeps HR, security, and legal professionals aware of potential risk in a simple, automated way.”

“InfoMart’s monitoring solution is truly exceptional, and they’ve taken great care to ensure ease of use,” said Brian Kelly, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing at Appriss Insights, InfoMart’s partner in continuous criminal monitoring. “The uses of continuous criminal monitoring are varied—and they all benefit both the employer and the employee. In addition to providing a proactive approach to security, monitoring grants employers the opportunity to adopt fair chance hiring practices and initiate workplace intervention for struggling employees.”

InfoMart’s criminal monitoring tool adds to their existing suite of post-hire monitoring solutions, including driver monitoring, professional license monitoring, social media monitoring, and more.
