Employment Background InvestigationsEmployment Background Investigations Inc. has been granted certification under the Verizon CyberTrust Security program for the 9th consecutive year.  This certification reflects EBI’s continued compliance with an extensive and continuous security assurance process, and validates the presence of risk reduction practices at EBI’s headquarters and global operations center located in Owings Mills, MD.  EBI continues its investment and commitment to consumer confidentiality and strict security protocols by achieving this certification since 2003.  Verizon’s auditors examined the security posture of EBI within the context of Cybertrust’s SiteSecure Security Management Program.  Evaluation procedures were conducted pursuant to Cybertrust’s risk reduction methodology, which addresses threats across six categories of risk, including: 

  • Electronic threats and vulnerabilities
  • Malicious code
  • Privacy issues
  • Human factors
  • Physical environment
  • Downtime issues 

“In today’s world of increasing cyber-terrorism and overwhelming concerns of electronic identity theft, we place the absolute highest priority on safeguarding the information entrusted to us by our clients, their applicants and employees,” says EBI’s President and CEO, Richard Kurland. 

By achieving certification through Cybertrust’s comprehensive Security Management Program, EBI can again provide assurance to our clients, partners, auditors and regulators that our information security controls, policies and procedures have been examined, measured and validated by an industry leader against a stringent set of security requirements, added Kurland.  This recertification comes on the heels of EBI’s recent achievement of NAPBS Accreditation which also required an audit of EBI’s tight security procedures and protocols.
