“With the growing threat of terrorism across the globe, the demand for screening new applicants has exploded. However, there is a high level of complexity involved in doing searches abroad and it behooves employers to be very diligent in investing in educating their own experts or hiring experts to assist them. As growth continues in this sector, employers would be wise to ensure they do their homework,” commented Nixon.

Media will be interested in attending to gain an insight into this emerging trend including the special challenges, when a company should consider an international search, country differences (laws, customs, procedures, court and criminal systems, etc.), key areas of challenge, legal definitions and regulations, terrorist search sources, factors impacting cost and the various resources available to help in an international search.
