Discover National Insurance Numbers
People born and resident in the UK are assigned a National Insurance number (referred to internally
as a NINO). As the UK does not have a system of personal ID cards, the NI number is along with the NHS
number, one of only two systems which provides every adult in the country with a code number. Consequently,
NI numbers are sometimes used for identification purposes in other contexts which have nothing to do
with their original National Insurance purpose.
Spirion finds and protects United Kingdom National Insurance Numbers. Our proprietary algorithms
perform a variety of real-time analytics to maximize accuracy and
minimize false positives. Spirion first starts with deep, deep data analysis.
When Spirion comes across data that could potentially be a match, it applies proprietary
validation techniques our data experts have developed after extensive data analysis to determine
whether the data is likely to be a UK National Insurance Number. These algorithms are updated every
month with new information to increase accuracy.
Beyond deep data analysis, Spirion also performs contextual analysis to increase the accuracy
of returning relevant information. By performing contextual analysis, Spirion can ascertain
whether the data is being referred to in a way that would also indicate it is relevant to an end user.
Finally, Spirion puts all of this power into the hands of the user. Although the software supports
defaults that have been configured by our data analytic experts, users may tune the sensitivity of the
search and cater it to the unique data set they are searching within their own internal environment.
