Why Choose American DataBank
If someone asked you what separated your company or institution from other businesses or schools, you wouldn’t shrug your shoulders. Other schools likely don’t have the same combination of faculty, alumni, breakthroughs or rich history. And if you’re running a business, your competitors likely do not have the same relationships, employees, values, or track record.
So how does American DataBank differentiate itself from the competition?
We raise the bar in our industry by providing exceptional customer service, innovative technology, and a proven compliance management strategy.

ComplianceBetter compliance management means direct source reporting, quality control, and the highest level of Security and Data Protection. American DataBank retains our own in-house legal counsel. We are FCRA and HIPAA compliant, and an PBSA accredited background screening provider.
Maintaining compliance with Federal agencies and regulations that govern consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) can be a complex task, not to mention the ever-changing State laws regarding background checks. With all of the changes that occur with regards to fair hiring practices, it is important to stay up to date on policies and procedures for background checks and adverse action.
Legal compliance in the background screening industry is critical. Failure to comply can lead to lawsuits and potential judgments against employers. Retaining our own counsel allows us to stay ahead of any trends in employment law. It allows us to spot potential issues before they arise. An additional benefit of our in-house counsel is the ability to keep our clients apprised of any legal changes that will affect their hiring process.
We understand how complicated background screening and compliance can be, and we aim to make it as simple as possible for our clients that use our services. We digest the ever-changing information that can come at you in this industry, and inform you of what you need to know, while taking as much work off of your hands as we possibly can.
The FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) was designed to protect consumers from inaccurate information in their credit reports, and the law has resulted in countless lawsuits for agencies that report out consumer information. American DataBank saves you time while saving you pain, by tracking recently published cases to avoid legal issues that could damage your business.
HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) was created partly to keep the health information of individuals private. And violations of HIPAA can cause a nightmare for your organization, despite how unintended your actions may have been. American DataBank closely tracks and monitors federal court decisions enforced by the US Department of Health & Human Services Office for Civil Rights, to ensure that we’re aware of any changes in HIPAA law that may affect your organization.
The Professional Background Screeners Association is the country’s largest and most recognized trade association for the background screening industry. Accreditation from the PBSA demonstrates that a background sceener meets the highest standard of professionalism and FCRA compliance in the industry, and only 10% of companies in the industry have met the requirements necessary to reach this distinction. ADB is both a founding and accredited member of the PBSA. American DataBank has achieved the highest level of accreditation offered by the PBSA, and is compliant with all necessary privacy and security regulations and procedures, to prevent potential disasters that other companies may overlook.
PCI-DSS (The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a standard used by companies that handle credit and debit cards to ensure the security of those giving payment card information to another party. In order to ensure your privacy and security, ADB complies with all PCI DSS data security requirements for credit card transactions.
