Cyber Background Check BC

A British Columbia cyber background check is just one of the multiple research services a Cyber Investigator will perform in BC.

Performing a British Columbia cyber background check will consist of discovering or verifying historical facts regarding a BC citizen, or sometimes a BC organization.

However, background checks in BC are often conducted on citizens for the purpose of employment screening for local BC businesses.

  • The amount of time a BC background check takes will be dependent on how deep the check goes.

Background checks in BC can involve researching criminal history (BC RCMP), credit history, social media presence, past education, employment history, references, and a BC resident's personal history. These BC cyber background check investigations often occur at a desk and utilize the internet (cyber background check) in-conjunction with multiple phone calls.

BC Background Check Databases

A large part of performing a BC background check will involve verifying a citizen's past history using databases accessed by BC Private Investigators, some paid databases and also free to use ones. A BC Cyber Investigator Investigator typically uses a paid BC government database to access information regarding criminal history.

  • However, just simply discovering BC court records is usually a service that the BC government jurisdiction offers for free. However, with a BC Private Investigator service, those records can be found much faster.

Often, a BC Investigator will lookup a citizen's BC court record for free and resort to paying for a criminal record check if court records are found.

  • This is a task that a British Columbia PI can do faster and at a lower cost than the average person.

Unlike searching for BC court records, a credit history check will often require the Cyber Investigator to pay for accessing the BC database that holds financial records.

BC Background Check: Phone Calls

When conducting a background check on a BC citizen, a Cyber Investigator will often perform a fair amount of phone calls if the client requests. This happens a lot when verifying educational degrees or employment history.

Often, the BC Cyber Investigator will contact the educational institute via phone and validate the degree with the school's records department.

  • However, some universities and colleges protect these records.

In this case, the Investigator will have to contact the BC provincial resident who is the subject of the background check and get them to contact the post-secondary institution themselves in order to access this information. The BC citizen will then be asked to request an educational transcript from the school and get the school to mail it to a BC address of the Investigator's choosing. This will mitigate tampering of the records document. As with education, researching BC references will also require phone calls. The BC Cyber Investigator will have to validate that the references are who they say they are and contact them in order to hear their opinions on the subject of the check.

BC Background Check:

Lastly, and often the largest part of a BC background check, the Investigator will utilize the internet/ Google as an investigative tool to research the subject's personal history:

  • Obviously, searching social media platforms will be an important part of this BC background check process.

However, a lot of information can be found on a BC resident outside of social media. There could be many mentions of the person on various websites. Many people have a rudimentary grasp on searching the internet via Google. An average person could find a few pieces of information when searching on the internet. However, a skilled BC Cyber Investigator will be able to find all relevant information and be able to accurately verify and document it properly. This is why, even with a simple background check task, an experienced and skilled BC Cyber Investigator should always be utilized.
