With Cyber Security experts estimating that up to 70% of all Data Breachers are caused by company insiders including 30% of these breaches being malicious, it is vital for businesses to compete regular background employee checks as part of their ‘Cyber Risk Mitigation Strategy’.

Stephanie, is a human-looking digital worker that uses natural language processing, sentiment analysis and deep learning and in the background, she is able to analyse a person for the appropriate levels of Honesty, Trustworthiness, Tolerance, Maturity, Loyalty and Resilience.

Background vetting includes a confidential one-on-one background screening interview covering areas such as criminal history, illegal drug use, financial stress, adverse work behavior, security breaches, false or inflated CVs and more. Initial vetting interviews are conducted by digital worker, Stephanie, the world’s first PSPF-compliant Augmented Intelligence (AI) screening solution custom-built for Australian employers to access.  After the interview is complete, machine learning algorithms are used that match the subjects' information with the Australian Government personnel security protocols, adjudicative guidelines, and standards. The AI-generated report is then carefully moderated by qualified human vetting officers. The turn-a-round is fast, feedback is accurate and costs are relatively low - from A$169 per Subject.


Risks Of a Compromised Employee are Significant -  Here are the hard facts:

1 in 5  subjects fraudulently lied on their Resume.

1 in 5 Data Breaches are caused by malicious employees

1 in 33 Retail employees have stolen from their Employer

5% of Annual Revenue is lost due to Occupational Fraud

3 in 5 subjects who have criminal convictions fail to admit

them even when asked during vetting.

1 in 6 Employees working with a Child Card Holders has 

a Criminal Record

1 in 50 Employees are currently using the illegal drug ICE

1 in 38 Employees is currently using Marijuana illegally.

More than 400,000 people in Australia have been screened using the Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF) of the Australian Government’s Personnel Security Protocols. It is by far Australia’s most widely used, comprehensive and consistently applied integrity standard.
