For example, as passports or university certificates are privacy-sensitive documents, we only store document ‘fingerprints’ on blockchain. Each fingerprint is individual and does not reveal any information about who the document belongs to. This means that the records cannot be tampered with thanks to the immutable nature of the blockchain protocol, as every member has to agree to its validity and can check the history of record changes. Every ‘TrueProof’ is therefore authenticated and secured. This method also eliminates the continual churn of verification requests on employers and educational institutions every time a professional applies for a new role &#8211; the verification can be done once and then shared with the relevant employer, regulator or professional body for the lifetime of the individual’s career.’’</p> <p>René concludes, “We’ve been receiving fantastic feedback from our partners and members on these updates already and look forward to the roll-out of further exciting innovations in the coming months – stay tuned!”</p> <p><strong>ENDS</strong></p> <p><strong>About</strong></p> <p> works with employers and international job applicants to enhance human resource processes through a fully digital, on-demand Primary Source Verification (PSV) solution. removes the friction of ever-repetitive background checks and replaces it with a broadly accepted standard that connects applicants with employers in a secured and trusted environment.
