WHY WE'RE HERE

We believe in augmenting the responsible risk management process, not replacing it.

In 2006, our technologies’ inventor was a member of a task force charged to solve the problem of vetting 700,000 Mexican Police after it was feared they were infiltrated by drug cartels and other criminal organizations. There was simply no way to accomplish this unless a new technology was invented that could securely and accurately screen massive volumes of people simultaneously.

After several years of research, development, testing, and fine-tuning, the Remote Risk Assessment (RRA) system was deployed in Mexico and has obtained significant results for all risk assessment applications undertaken to date.

Building on that success, we looked at the available risk assessment technologies in both government and enterprise and saw that current risk management solutions used in screening and fraud detection operations were costly, time and labor intensive, imprecise, open to manipulation and unreliable.

Background checks, in countries where they exist, are incapable of identifying people who have committed crimes but have not been caught or have lied during the application process. Fingerprinting is similarly limited in nature. Polygraph and other psychological testing are highly inaccurate and expensive. Conventional voice stress analysis, while an effective, accurate and proven technology, is not designed for high volume screening operations.

To solve this problem, the Streaming Risk Assessment (SRA) was created to better serve enterprise needs and the Remote Risk Assessment (RRA) was further refined, including the creation of a mobile system capable of conducting risk assessments anywhere in the world supervised by our fly-away teams of special operators to best meet the needs of both government and enterprise.

We saw a need for a different kind of risk assessment technology, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to deploy it. That’s why we founded AC Global Risk.
