M - Media Search... (Spelling It Out)
A Media search will check through a range of resources to uncover both negative and positive public articles relating to the candidate.
These articles could help prevent a threat to the company’s reputation if the articles are negative such as linking the candidate to crime/terrorism/scandal. On the other hand positive articles could help support the hiring of a candidate and give another layer of security for the pre-employment checks.
