Be GPG45-ready with SynID
The publication of the DIATF Beta Trust Framework and GPG45 has raised the bar for the level of assurance required to verify someone’s identity.
This is particularly important for businesses that need to ‘know your customer’ (KYC) or to support Right to Rent, Right to Work and DBS checks.
Existing methods of identity verification are open to manipulation by fraudsters, which is why incorporating digital identity checks into your customer onboarding process is essential.
SynID, developed by Synectics as an Attribute Service Provider (ASP), is a digital identity verification solution designed around the DIATF Beta Trust Framework and GPG45. It features enhanced strength, validity, identity fraud and activity history attributes to ensure your customers are who they say they are.
