What is “private investigator surveillance”? Surveillance is the covert observation of people, places, and often, associated vehicles, and can form part of a private investigation. The goal is to gather information about a subject required by an individual or company. It is widely used in the insurance industry which is beset by fake claims that need investigation and by manufacturers and companies suffering Intellectual Property (IP) theft. Normally a surveillance team is composed 4-5 individuals with the necessary transport and high quality surveillance equipment used to record images and sound.
What is a company background check? Background checks on businesses are conducted when you need to verify the authenticity and legitimacy of a company. This involves an analysis of records of official, proprietary, paid and open-source databases. Depending on the reasons for a background check—for example checking a supplier or an investment opportunity—a site visit, surveillance or social media review may be requested. A company background check is less involved than due diligence.
