August 2017 Blog Posts

2017 has marked an incredible year of growth and corporate strategy for SJV. We have seen each of our Product Houses expand and our leadership team has also developed and strengthened. In fact, I am going to break the fourth wall here for a moment and point out that is exactly why we have been launching the Personnel Profiles and Blog Posts, to help the Screening Industry continue to learn who the real people are behind the brand of SJV.

Sanction is a term that is often used when referring to databases like ours. I’m often asked “do you have a sanction database?” or “is this a sanction check?”

We do have sanctions in our dataset. For example, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has many lists of sanctioned individuals. However, it’s a common misconception that an entire dataset like ours is a Sanction Database or Sanction search. Sanctions usually refer to Financial Sanctions. Financial Sanctions are restrictive measures imposed on individuals or entities in an effort to curtail their activities and to exert pressure and influence on them.
