Data Centre Network Security has become an important subject over the last few years. In the past in order to start working with public sector organizations, service providers and employees had to go through an employment screening process. These days even private sector companies require background screening from individuals as well as subcontracted companies. Therefore we decided to provide our clients with a higher level of confidence by obtaining the highest level of clearance in the UK - SC (Security Check) - for key members of staff.

New members of our team, who will provide IT Consulting or network security related services to you, are required to obtain at least BS checks issued by one of the leading employment screening companies in UK - Credence Background Screening Ltd.

A security clearance is a status granted to individuals allowing them access to certain government establishments and to information that is classified “Secret”, after completion of a thorough background check. A clearance by itself is normally not sufficient to gain access; the organization must determine that the cleared individual needs to know the information. No one is supposed to be granted access to classified information solely because of rank, position, or a security clearance.

Clearance is checked at four levels, depending on the classification of materials that can be accessed — Counter-Terrorist Check (CTC), Baseline Check (BPSS), Security Check (SC), and Developed Vetting (DV). Security Check allows an individual long-term unsupervised access to protectively-marked SECRET material, whilst for TOP SECRET Developed Vetting is required. All Officers and some specialist trades within the British Armed Forces are cleared to SC to enable them to carry out their jobs. Those with security clearance must usually sign the Official Secrets Act.
