Sensée, a homeworking specialist recently announced that it has become a member of CIFAS, the UK's Fraud Prevention Service.
CIFAS membership will allow Sensée to access the CIFAS Staff Fraud Database. This will help Sensée to check whether its present or prospective employees have previously committed cases of fraud and to record any new cases that have been identified.
Officials said that by joining CIFAS, Sensée will be able to bring added dimension to its security procedures when considering new members of staff.
In a press statement, Sensée’s Director Kelly Bains, said: “Trust is a vital ingredient in any successful partnership and it’s essential that our clients have complete visibility in our procedures and people. CIFAS membership brings with it an important commitment to transparency. Each employee is notified of Sensée’s use of the database and is aware that any fraudulent activity will be recorded with CIFAS in order to protect the other members of CIFAS.”
He further added that “As a company, we are also fully committed to training staff on the use of CIFAS data and the responsibilities that this brings.”
Sensée’s already carries out full Disclosure and Barring Service Checks on all prospective employees. It also looks after physical property checks, in person or via webcam to ensure compliance with all health and safety aspects and as additional validation of an individual’s suitability.
Leading organizations from the banking, grant giving, credit card, asset finance, retail credit, mail order and online retail, insurance, savings, telecommunications, factoring, share dealing, vetting agencies, contact center and insurance sectors, share fraud information through CIFAS.
CIFAS also offers information, advice and a service called Protective Registration to members of the public who are at increased risk of falling victim to fraud.
