ISO, Seisint Sign Deal to Fight Fraud

February 18, 2002

Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO) and Seisint Inc. have announced a licensing agreement to provide insurers’ claims and special investigation units (SIUs), and subrogation personnel access to a wide range of public records and publicly-available data for in-depth searches on individuals and businesses as part of complex claims investigations.

Under the agreement, insurers choosing this optional ISO service can use Seisint’s Accurint family of data products to locate information on individuals and businesses for insurance-claims investigations, and retrieve public-record documents and other publicly-available information.

Accurint provides access to the world’s largest set of accessible location information, with the ability to search billions of records in fractions of seconds. Its proprietary technology allows users to quickly perform high-speed, targeted searches countrywide and retrieve information going back up to 30 years on names and aliases, addresses, social security numbers, telephone numbers, dates of birth, names and addresses of relatives and neighbors, property ownership and sales records, and related services.

ISO will integrate and deliver Accurint information through ISO ClaimSearch®, the property/casualty industry’s all-claims antifraud system, via its secure Internet platform.

Accurint’s high-volume data search and retrieval capability is the latest offering for claims investigators that ISO has integrated into the ISO ClaimSearch public-records service. Accurint complements public-information records available to ISO ClaimSearch users from the FastDataSM service of First Data Solutions, which currently provides a wide range of public-records searches through the ISO system.
