Who Are you…? It’s Me…!
Since Early days of human history till 1970s, when anyone asked the question “Who are you…”, they were only interested in knowing the name, address, and profession of the unknown person. But with the onset of the internet era, this question demanded a huge bunch of information; name, age, DOB, address, nationality, education, profession, experience, recommendations, LinkedIn profile, Twitter profile, Facebook profile, Instagram profile and many more, the list is never-ending. Wherever we go we have to prove our identity to someone. Educational institutions need previous education information; professional organization are looking for prior experience, banks have KYC documents requirements, hotels have identity and address document needs, hospitals have similar needs. We carry so many documents in original or paper copies, to answer this question, “Who are you…?”
Until recent, KYC verification process involved ID/Document verification where the applicant was supposed to personally visit a vendor’s office to show the original documents so that that vendor representative can verify the applicant’s authenticity. This practice was time-consuming and very expensive. In early days, customers were ok to wait and complete the physical verification process however, nowadays if any vendor is following this traditional process then customer experience is hampered. Banks and other vendors don’t prefer this conventional method anymore. For optimizing time, the expense involved and most important for improving customer experience, they have taken the KYC process to the next level. Under this newly adopted process, customers don’t need to visit vendor’s branch for face-to-face verification and document authentication. Vendors are ready to make use of various online and mobile app supported channels to receive and verify the customer identity and documents. Going online solves many problems, but at the same time, it brings added challenges. Fraud agencies and hackers are active on every online channel. They can always hack your identity and do the transaction on your behalf by pretending to be you. News channels are reporting one or other cyber fraud every day. Customer data is easily stolen from the internet interface. Until now simple username and passwords were used to access online channels. At the top of it, they do SMS verification. It is possible to fake this data and hackers can seize SMS. With advancement in the identity verification systems, the different blending of biometrics is being used to authenticate customers. The need of the hour is to have a system which works in every country. A platform which ensures your online digital identity security and allows you to easily answer the question “Who are you…?” with an answer which is valid in every country of the world.
