Download ESR Whitepaper The Dangers of Offshoring Personally Identifiable Information, PII, United States

When a United States resident applies for a job, they are likely to undergo a background check. A disclosure and consent form required by law is completed by the applicant where they provide Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) such as their name, date of birth, and Social Security number (“SSN”) — everything needed for identity theft. What job applicants, and many employers, do not know is that there is a substantial likelihood that their PII will end up outside the U.S. and its territories in a foreign call center or data processing location well beyond the protection of U.S. privacy laws through the process known as “offshoring,” which provides virtually no protection against identity theft.

Offshoring of pre-employment screening occurs because an increasingly large number of national background screening firms offshore PII to countries with cheaper production costs and inexpensive labor. While offshoring is used to reduce costs and increase profit, the side effect for employers and job applicants can be putting PII at considerable risk as well as compromised quality and accuracy. This complimentary whitepaper by Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), reveals the dangers of offshoring PII used in domestic background checks outside of the United States.
