Screening and identity verification system on show at ITAA seminar

LexisNexis Risk And Information Analytics : 08 May, 2008  (New Product)
System for verifying identity and background checking for pre-employment screening purposes to be the subject of ITAA seminar on security clearance.
LexisNexis Special Services is co-sponsoring the Information Technology Association of America's (ITAA) security clearance reform seminar to be held on May 7th in Arlington, Virginia. The company's screening and identity verification solutions align closely with the recommendations contained in the security clearance reform proposal recently sent to the President by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). LexisNexis actively works with government agencies to deploy fast, effective and policy-compliant screening solutions making use of the company's advanced analytics solutions and high-quality data.
The reforms proposed by OMB outline the first new approach to the government's security clearance program in 50 years. Key elements of the reforms include the electronic collection and validation of information early in the clearance process; the deployment of automated processes to reduce manual work and accelerate clearances; the deployment of modern analytic technologies; and continuous ongoing evaluations making use of automated database checks.

"We are excited to see that OMB is recommending a proven approach to screening and Risk Management long championed by LexisNexis and used extensively by our commercial customers," said Haywood Talcove, CEO of LNSSI. "Our screening and identity verification solutions enable the government to affordably accelerate security clearance investigations while improving the government's ability to mitigate security risks."

As one of the fastest growing full-service background screening providers and a trusted provider of location, screening and authenticating solutions to the government, LexisNexis Special Services is uniquely able to help the government implement the proposed reforms. The company's Screening & Identity Verification Solutions draw upon global sources of data, data fusion technology and advanced analytics to empower government agencies to make critical employment decisions with confidence.

The centrepiece of the company's screening offering is LexisNexis Applicant Screening, a comprehensive solution designed for government and other public agencies that provides quick and effective results for organizations that need easy, affordable and regulatory-compliant background checks. The solution provides organizations with comprehensive verification of information such as criminal, employment and education history, and pinpoints other high risk information that may impact the determination of an applicant's suitability.
LexisNexis screening solutions are developed by a team of commercial screening and government security specialists, including a former Director of the Defence Security Service, the Chairman of the ITAA's Identity Management subcommittee and former state and federal law enforcement personnel. Kim Kerr, Vice President and General Manager of LexisNexis Screening Solutions, is a recognised industry expert and recently co-authored Background Screening Investigations: Managing Hiring Risk from the HR and Security Perspectives.

The company is showcasing its screening capabilities at the ITAA security clearance reform event being held May 7th from 7:30-11:30 am at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, VA.
