Background Investigations/Pre-Employment Screening

Comprehensive background investigations & pre-screening employment checks conducted by veteran investigators.

SCI background investigators are highly trained professionals with years of experience as law enforcement officers and have received specialized training in conducting background investigations. The professionals at SCI Global, Inc. research, analyze and fact-check data before providing it to our clients. Our background investigations comply with federal and state fair credit reporting laws.

Background Investigation Reports:

SCI Global, Inc. provides background check reports that are easy-to-read, self-explanatory and confidential.

Our software utilizes Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection with 256-bit encryption, similar to what banks use to encrypt financial information while in transport over the internet.

Database & Backups:

Only authorized individuals can access data. Access to our database is restricted to Secure Socket Layer connections and password protected. Users' passwords are stored with bcrypt (1-way salted encryption) and are unrecoverable even in the unlikely event that the database was compromised. Daily database backups are archived in perpetuity and available for restoration if something cataclysmic were to happen. The database is encrypted at rest, so if physical hardware was compromised the data would be unreadable.


At SCI Global, Inc. we are aware that not all background investigations are the same. There is a significant difference between a basic background investigation and a background investigation for a position of trust, influence, and fiduciary responsibility.
