Digital Identity Verification, a Necessity for Remote AML Compliance

Providing digital services that can be accessed anytime, anywhere had become more of an expectation from customers across the globe. Today however, it is has become a necessity.

COVID-19 is forcing Governments to put increasingly strong restrictions on the freedom of people’s movement in a crucial attempt to control and reduce the spread of the virus. Whilst these health and safety procedures are being implemented to safeguard ourselves and those around us it creates significant challenges for businesses and customers everywhere. Customers still need access to crucial financial services and businesses need to try and continue providing these services as much as possible.

Across the financial services industry, the constraints on people’s movement and the encouraged, or in some cases mandated, social distancing will drastically reduce the number of customers visiting business branches in-person. If these businesses don’t have an effective and efficient digital ID&V solution in place it will make it difficult, or impossible, to do business with customers. Indeed, with Open Banking regulatory compliance, it is mandatory that any credential bound to a customer must be done in a secure manner, this includes any credentials resets; in some cases this will also mandate ID&V as well.

Whilst businesses must be able to provide their services to customers digitally, they must also ensure that they continue to meet obligatory compliance requirements such as AML.

ID-Pal is working with companies to ensure that they are able to continue providing their services to new and existing customers.
