Is an Online Police Check Secure?
Getting an online police check is the fastest and most convenient way to obtain one. With licensed providers like Triton, you can get the information you need in 15 minutes or less all from the comfort of your home. That means you don’t need to get transportation somewhere, stand in line, then wait days or even weeks while your request is processed.
Nonetheless, it’s reasonable to ask if requesting an online police check is secure.
In 2021, nearly a fifth of Canadian businesses was impacted by cybercrime. And considering that an online police check shows a person’s convictions, arrest warrants, outstanding charges, and other criminal records, there is potential for this information to be abused if it fell into the wrong hands.
That’s why it is crucial background check providers have the proper safeguards in place. As such, here is more information to show you why requesting an online police check from Triton is secure.
- Data security
Information gathered during Triton’s background checks are maintained in secure databases that are protected by the appropriate security safeguards to protect from unauthorized access, including physical, technological, and organizational systems and protocols.
Triton regularly updates these systems to protect against any new threats.
Of course, these systems are only effective if there’s a system of accountability to ensure compliance with all industry and government regulations. That’s why Triton has a designated Privacy Officer.
Triton requires all clients to enter into Privacy and Terms of Service Agreements. Triton also continuously retrains staff on updated information protection standards. Finally, Triton monitors all third parties who share information to ensure compliance with all relevant privacy principles.
Triton doesn’t collect any information without the informed consent of the individual seeking our services, which is clearly set out in our consent forms.
