From what we have seen, Applicant Information’s competitors are making attempts at masking their data, as well. This is fast becoming an industry standard and Applicant Information takes pride in serving as a leader in this initiative. With the increased risk of fraud and identity theft in today’s society, it is essential that we fully vet our customers prior to giving them access to personal data. Identity fraud has been defined as the “fastest growing crime of the century.” Applicant Information is one company that is doing all it can to protect society from this risk. Applicant Information will continue to strive to set the standard in this area and is proud to have competitors follow our lead.
