The post-pandemic background screening and hiring landscape will look much different heading into 2021 and employers should keep an eye on three key identity verification trends. Tools such as Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA) or electronic Identity Verification (eIV) are growing more vulnerable to imposters due to personal information being more readily available on platforms like social media and the dark web, but more advanced tools are within reach thanks to evolving mobile technologies. Identity verification also can be conducted with the assistance of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, high-speed cell towers, and facial recognition. And workplaces continue to evolve with rapid increases in gig and remote workers. The hybrid workplace model, which allows both in-house and remote work, presents unique challenges when it comes to onboarding remotely and in person.
