When it comes to working with people and using services, it can be a bit of a nightmare for a big tech firm. You’ll get hundreds of people wanting to provide you with the goods you require, but if you want to stay squeaky clean, some might need a large amount of vetting.
It’s so important to get that process right, as it could well have serious consequences on your business, from hacking to leaking sensitive information, handling stolen goods and much, much more.
But how can you ensure this doesn’t happen?
Retrieve Public Court Records
Searching public records can be hugely beneficial when deciding whether to use a product or service from an individual or companyas they can tell you a huge amount about them in all manner of areas.
There are a number of ways in which you can do this, with these being among the most popular methods…
Use A People Search Engine
People search engines are becoming more and more accessible to people and are a great way of uncovering information about people, particularly if you’re buying from the likes of eBay or Craigslist.
They can tell you all sorts of information, many of which can be particularly useful for tech companies.
Using a public record search engine will help you uncover any information that could impact your decisions on working with people and retrieve public court records.
Checking Social Media Accounts
Checking social media accounts can also provide invaluable information about a person/business.
It’s always a good idea to check out the people you’ll be working with’s social media channels before using them as you’ll be able to see how professional they are, their associates and how they communicate with others.
It can be incredibly insightful and give you a strong opinion on whether you should work with these people or not.
What will be impressive is if a business or individual treats their channels as a way to keep up-to-date with industry insight. On the other hand, you’re less likely to use people if they post pro-hacking sentiment, highlight drug use or are rude and use bad language towards other people.
Naturally, if it’s the latter and you’ve screened them beforehand, you’ve saved both time and money as you’ll no longer be using their services.
A Google Search
A Google Search is usually one of the first things a company will do when researching a product or service, however it should really come following a background check or social media search.
Let’s say you were to discover a criminal record on a person you’re going to buy from, you’ll then be able to read more by Googling their name and details of the crime. This can be integral in the tech world, with many cyber crimes committed these days.
Cyber crime revenue topped $1.5 trillion this year, and more and more people are being caught out. Background checking can certainly ensure you don’t use someone who could potentially harm your own revenue streams and online safety.
