When it comes to your business’s vendors performing essential tasks, do you know if they are trustworthy and have the credentials to do the job? For cybersecurity vendors, the quality of their team is even more important, as they have access to your businesses systems and sensitive data. Incidents like the SolarWinds breach and the quality of their security as a third-party vendor is just one example of how critical it is for businesses to vet vendors’ systems and staff. In fact, a 2019 report found that 44% of companies that experienced a significant data breach did so due to a third-party vendor.
Hiring quality staff that are not only experienced in the industry but also have a demonstrated history of trustworthiness and professionalism is top priority for us at Vertex. All of our staff are required to pass a thorough police criminal background assessment before working for us. And we’re not only looking for issues in Australia, we perform checks internationally as well.
When it comes to security, no standard of conduct is too rigorous. There are many things that these background checks can flag, including theft, assault, or breaching Health Act protocols during COVID-19. If a candidate has any of these issues come up during this check, they are not hired as part of our team. Your security is our top priority and we take the utmost caution to protect it.
