As of this week, all Domain Admins in the organisation have had to submit to background and credit checks in order to maintain these rights, and quite possibly continuation of employment (afterall, what use is a Domain Admin to an organisation without any privs).
This seems like overkill to us. Although we're a large multinational natural resources corporation, we are not a military, government, or medical organisation, and we certainly don't work with children (although it does feel that way in some meetings).
So, I guess my rather general and open question is this:
- Have you been subject to background, security, and credit checks in the line of duty?
- If so, what type of organisation was it?
- Did you feel it was warranted, or overkill?
Thoughts and comments appreciated
