Aletheia Consulting Group’s managing principal Terry Corley to participate in workshop related to Issues surrounding law enforcement / private sector partnerships in background screening for employment purposes at the 29th Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime September 7, 2011.

The annual Cambridge Symposium is a truly unique event which over the years has made an unrivalled contribution to understanding the real issues involved in preventing and controlling economically motivated serious crime. As a respected and trusted international forum and network it has also made an impressive and meaningful contribution to fostering international co-operation and promoting mutual understanding and goodwill.

The Twenty–Ninth symposium will focus primarily on the responsibility of those who look after other people’s wealth, or who advise or oversee those who do, to identify and manage risk. In particular, we will concentrate on risks resulting from criminal and subversive activity and, perhaps perversely, those thrown up by laws and regulatory initiatives designed to attack criminal activity.

The programme is structured to provide a depth and breadth of opportunity – second to none, for those participating in the programme to become aware not only of existing, but also new threats, and how best to address them.

Those who are concerned to protect and promote the integrity and wellbeing of their national economy, institution or enterprise – or who are concerned to better understand the risks facing business today, cannot afford to miss this very special event.

Demystifying International Criminal Records – Part 1

Legal implications for international criminal records research are not as complex as one might imagine, however for U.S. based screeners and MNCs they do involve the intersection of U.S. and the application of local law. When addressing an organization based entirely outside of the U.S. than other considerations need to be taken in to account. However, with that said, there are essential considerations employers and screeners must be aware of; (1) how, (2) where criminal information is acquired, (3) transmitted, and (4) utilized during the recruitment and selection process by all parties concerned.

International Criminal RecordsThe last few weeks posts I’ve shared a sampling of Country Background Screening Essentials from Mexico to Japan. My coming posts will cover an overview of subjects such as legal implications of doing overseas criminal record checks, acquiring data based on legal status, transmitting international criminal records overseas, sources of criminal information, methods of data acquisition, commons uses of criminal records from overseas government agencies, and finally a sampling of country reports from the four corners of the globe.

I would like to hear from some of our readers which countries they’d like to learn more about. Please email your country requests to
