OTYS announces a new partnership with Otentica, offering users the ability to efficiently screen candidates from within their familiar OTYS environment, streamlining and enhancing the recruitment process.

The importance of thorough screening

Otentica emphasizes the crucial role of thorough screening in recruitment.

  • Save time: The system automatically follows up with new candidates, eliminating the need for manual follow-up.
  • Reduce errors: Validation ensures data accuracy, eliminating mistakes.
  • Enhanced user experience: Optimizes the candidate experience by allowing document submission at their convenience, without constant reminders.
  • Personal recognition: Everything is presented in your company's branding for seamless integration.

Integration features

The integration involves collecting data from applicants, verified through the system, including:

  • Identity verification: Simple validation of identity documents, personal data, and IBAN information.
  • Diplomas: Direct linkage to the DUO database for accurate verification.
  • Professional registrations: Documents and certificates linked to CIGB and SKJ.
  • Certificate of conduct: Digitally request and verify a Certificate of Conduct (VOG).

OTYS is proud to announce that we have successfully obtained the ISO 27001:2023 certification. This international standard for information security highlights our commitment to protecting customer data and our own business information. With our Information Security Management System (ISMS), we ensure all information is kept confidential, secure, and accessible. This certification confirms our dedication to handling personal and business data with care.

What is ISO 27001 and why is it important for OTYS?

ISO 27001 is an international standard for information security. Achieving this certification requires careful preparation and strict adherence to regulations, verified through an extensive audit by an external organization. This certification demonstrates that OTYS meets the highest standards for security and data protection.

"Our clients trust us with a large amount of personal data. To honor this trust, we already had numerous measures in place. It's gratifying to see that only minimal adjustments were needed to achieve this certification."

Bastiaan Brans

Why is ISO 27001 Certification important for our clients?

Our clients need to trust that their data is safe with us. We prioritize privacy and data protection, ensuring that client information is secure. With the rise of cybercrime, it is more critical than ever for businesses to keep their data secure. The ISO 27001 certification shows that OTYS complies with GDPR and has robust measures to protect client data.

"This certification is not an 'end result' but rather a 'beginning.' ISO is about continuous improvement, and this process and the discussions with auditors have inspired us to implement further enhancements."

Bastiaan Brans

Continuous improvement of information security

Achieving ISO 27001 is just the first step. Information security is an ongoing process, and we will continue to improve our procedures and measures. Annual reviews ensure we maintain compliance with the standards, and a major audit every three years keeps our security measures up-to-date.

Diplomas, professional qualifications, and identity information verified within minutes. With Otentica, you automate pre-employment screening across all sectors.

What is pre-employment screening?

Pre-employment screening, in short, is a background check on job applicants and existing employees. The purpose of pre-employment screening is to assess and verify the suitability and reliability of candidates, as well as to minimize risks related to fraud, theft, security, and compliance with laws and regulations.

Why screen with Otentica?

Research shows that job applicants often present falsehoods to improve their chances, ranging from embellishing resumes to serious fraud involving diplomas, identity, and professional qualifications. Because companies find it challenging to assess this risk, thorough pre-employment screening is essential to detect misconduct. With Otentica, not only is the onboarding time for new candidates reduced, but the 'candidate experience' is also optimized through a fully digital, simple, and user-friendly approach.

Through Otentica, various details of the applicant are requested and verified, including:

  • ID information (passport, driver's license, etc.)
  • Verification of education and diplomas (DUO)
  • Professional qualifications
  • Banking information
  • Company details (Chamber of Commerce & VAT)
  • Criminal history (Certificate of Good Conduct)

For whom?

Otentica is the ultimate screening solution for any organization. Regardless of the sector, Otentica can be used to thoroughly check personnel. In addition to screening potential candidates, it may be interesting to screen current employees in the case of job changes, organizational changes such as mergers, changed personal situations, and new regulations. This way, you can identify risk factors and keep personnel records up-to-date.

About the integration

The integration with Otentica enables OTYS customers to screen (future) personnel from within their own OTYS environment. This increases efficiency, ensures compliance with laws and regulations, and prevents information from being fragmented throughout an organization (GDPR).
