Cyber Background Check Calgary

A Calgary Private Investigator cyber background check is just one of the multiple research services a Cyber Investigator will perform in Calgary. Performing a cyber background check will consist of discovering or verifying historical facts regarding a Calgary citizen, or sometimes a Calgary organization.

However, background checks in Calgary are often conducted on citizens for the purpose of employment screening for local businesses. The amount of time a background check takes will be dependent on how deep the check goes. ​ Background checks in Calgary can involve researching criminal history, credit history, social media presence, past education, employment history, references, and a Calgary resident's personal history. These cyber background check investigations often occur at a desk and utilize the internet (cyber background check) in-conjunction with multiple phone calls.

Calgary Background Check Databases

A big part of performing a Calgary background check will involve verifying a citizen's past history using databases accessed by Calgary Private Investigators, some paid databases and also free to use ones. A Calgary Background Cyber Investigator typically uses a paid Alberta government database to access information regarding criminal history. However, just simply discovering Calgary court records is usually a service that the AB government jurisdiction offers for free. However, with a Calgary Private Investigator service, those records can be found much faster. Often, a Calgary Private Investigator will lookup a citizen's AB court record for free and resort to paying for a criminal record check if court records are found.

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

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

Calgary Background Check: Phone Calls

When conducting a background check on a Calgary citizen, a Calgary Private 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 Calgary Cyber Investigator will contact the educational institute via phone and validate the degree with the school's records department. However, some AB universities and colleges protect these records. ​ In this case, the Calgary Investigator will have to contact the Calgary resident who is the subject of the background check and get them to contact the AB post-secondary institution themselves in order to access this information. The Calgary citizen will then be asked to request an educational transcript from the school and get the school to mail it to a Calgary address of the Investigator's choosing. This will mitigate tampering of the records document. As with education, researching Calgary references will also require phone calls. The Calgary 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.

Calgary Background Research: Using the Internet as an Investigative Tool

Lastly, and often the largest part of a Calgary background check, the Calgary 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 Calgary background check process.

However, a lot of information can be found on a 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 Calgary 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 Calgary Cyber Investigator should always be utilized.
