Applicants applying for cyber security should have their background checked, taking into account relevant laws and regulations.

The check may include:

  • review of recommendations
  • verification of CV accuracy
  • verification of educational qualifications
  • verification of identity from an independent source
  • other more detailed checks (e.g. credit information, review of previous claims or criminal record)

The background check may also be extended to, for example, teleworkers, contractors or other third parties. The depth of the background check can be related to the category of the accessed data.
