Data security is a top priority for KENTECH, and we are committed to protecting the privacy of our clients and their applicants and employees.

We maintain data security policies, processes and technology that invoke administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed to help protect and secure the information we process and store.

Layered Security

Application Security For Background Checks

Data transmitted to or from the KENTECH applications is encrypted using TLS 1.2. We store sensitive information in encrypted form using a unique key. We engage independent security experts to audit our code and test our applications for vulnerabilities.

Account Security For Employers and Candidates

We follow best practices for protecting you and your candidate’s account, with passwords hashed and salted using role-based access controls, and suspicious activity alerts.

Organizational Security

All KENTECH employees undergo in-depth background checks, including FBI livescan fingerprinting before joining the team, and  we regularly audit compliance with policies and procedures.

In addition, KENTECH staff carry PERC (Permanent Employment Record Card) Security Permits, and undergo the following Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) annual training:  Security Breach Plan & Awareness  Cyber Awareness Challenge  Social Networking  Phishing Awareness  Identifying and Safeguarding Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

All employee laptops are securely locked and have mandatory full-disk encryption, and we strictly limit and audit access to customer data.
