Employment Screening Resources (ESR) stands at the forefront of compliance and one of our primary goals is to ensure that ongoing procedures and best practices are observed in order to keep ESR and our clients in line with any new or changing laws and regulations.
What is it
ESR has developed a tool that allows clients that use the ESR manual background check ordering solution to upload signed, mandatory background check related documents at the time the order is entered.
The mandatory documents are:
End-User FCRA Certifications,
Background Check Disclosure,
Rights and Acknowledgements,
What change is being made?
ESR currently has a multi-factor authentication (MFA) option available for all clients. Starting August 1, MFA will become mandatory and required for all clients.
Why is this changing?
ESR is entrusted with highly sensitive information necessary for us to conduct background checks for our clients, and we have always taken extraordinary steps to ensure data security. Part of that effort is contracting with third-party data security experts that keep ESR informed about the changing security landscape and best practices to protect data; we have been advised that mandatory MFA is now a best practice. Making multo-factor authentication mandatory supports our commitment to uncompromised data security.
How does this work?
When in use, MFA will require proof of authentication via email upon the following conditions:
Generally, the configured value used for MFA lifetime is 24 hours. This value can be adjusted for certain clients upon review and discussion with your ESR service representative.
Who is affected by this change?
When will this change take place?
ESR will implement MFA on all client accounts on Sunday, August 1 at approximately 7 PM PST.
