Have you ever had the feeling when someone is talking about their past experiences, they are lying to you? This may not just be in casual conversation, but even possibly when that person is applying for a position within your company. Anyone can write down on a CV that they have previous astronaut experience, and he or she carried out some general maintenance on the International Space Centre 8 years ago. They may even tell you they were previously in a position of CEO for a multi-million-pound company. Worst of all, you may believe him or her... Sentry Investigations provide in depth background searches into people who you may need to establish an understanding of. We search a whole host data bases to build clear pictures of people, thus allowing you to make informed decisions on how you wish to proceed with that person.
Types of Search
Non-Intrusive Data Searches
Our job is to dig into the people's background's. This may seem pretty intrusive but our approach is entirely professional but most importantly, legal. If we can satisfy a Data Protection Impact Assessment with our reasons for carrying out background checks on somebody then we will proceed with our enquires. If we do not get over this first hurdle, the investigation will cease there and then as we will be in breach of GDPR requirements. This may not be the outcome some clients want to hear, but we take GDPR very seriously as should all professional organisations.
We thoroughly scan CV's and make in depth enquires into the validity of past experiences, qualifications, previously owned companies etc. These checks are not only limited to UK searches, but pretty much anywhere in the world. Our Open-Source Intelligence Operatives have the knowledge and skill set to obtain information through sources most people wouldn't know about or even consider. Our searches are not always necessarily business related either. Searches can be carried out on a partner or "friend" of yours to ascertain whether they have been telling you the truth about who they really are.
