November 16, 2018
Digital Identity-based Platform Helps Companies Fight Onboarding Fraud, Money Laundering and to Meet KYC/KYCC Regulations
LONDON, UK, November 16, 2018 – IdentityMind, Digital Identities You Can Trust, announced that IdentityMind will be exhibiting its SaaS-based risk, compliance, and fraud prevention Version 2.0 platform in Booth 819 at the November 19–20 LendIt Fintech Europe, Europe’s leading event for innovation in financial services, at the Business Design Centre, London.
LendIt Fintech Europe, a gathering of more than 1,200 industry professionals in London, showcases the leaders in innovation across financial services, including the digital banking, fintech, blockchain and lending industries.
IdentityMind’s Version 2.0 platform builds, maintains, and analyzes trusted digital identities worldwide, allowing FinTechs, digital banks, lending companies, and others to fight identity fraud and meet regulatory AML compliance requirements by performing identity proofing, transaction monitoring, sanctions and PEP screening, and to detect and prevent identity and transaction fraud.
“IdentityMind’s Trusted Digital identities-based platform is the right fit for FinTechs doing business in global markets by allowing them to significantly reduce identity fraud and risk exposure,” said Jose Caldera, Chief Products and Marketing Officer, IdentityMind. “FinTechs face a multitude of challenges in verifying a borrower’s true identity due to the enormous volume of false, stolen or synthetic identities. IdentityMind stands at the forefront by offering these companies a digital identities-based platform to protect their brands while stopping bad actors.”
Data breaches continue to soar, unleashing millions of personal identity information (PII) – credit/debit card numbers, emails, passwords, and more – placing data in the hands of nefarious actors who seek to exploit them using stolen, false or synthetic identities. In the U.S alone, the Identity Theft Resource Center reported over 668 breaches comprising 22,408,258 compromised records between January 1 and July 2, 2018. The 2018 Identity Fraud Study by Javelin Strategy & Research reported that fraudsters hit 16.7 million fraud victims in the U.S. in 2017 – up from 15.4 million in 2016 – with credit card accounts representing the most prevalent target for new account fraud, accompanied by email payments and other internet accounts.
IdentityMind’s Version 2.0 platform is used by hundreds of customers spanning six continents to help them fight identity fraud and meet regulatory compliance requirements without introducing customer friction or increasing false positives with the following:
- Know Your Customer (KYC) and Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD): The IdentityMind Version 2.0 platform enables clients to not only do identity verification, but to also protect their platforms against synthetic or stolen identities and enable them to do enhanced due diligence on their users.
