A practical guide to Digital Identity

14 September 2021 at 10:00am

Digital ID is now an established part of how consumers and firms confirm their identity. With the Government recently launching in 2021 its Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework to further promote the use of digital identities in the UK, there has never been a better time to learn about the legal and technological underpinning for Digital ID and verification. 

This interactive online course will provide attendees with an understanding of the key aspects of digital identity within the home buying and selling process and mortgage lending, the principles of using a variety of data attribute to confirm someone's identity, Government and legal standards and the backdrop for the Government’s Trust Framework. 

Items to be covered will include:

  • Background to Digital ID in the UK
  • What is a digital identity?
  • Identity standards, Government and legal guidance (GPG45 and Anti-Money Laundering)
  • The digital identity trust scheme for home buying & selling
  • Current Government proposals and principles of interoperability
  • What to look for in ID providers

Who should attend?
This course will be of particular interest to those managing or providing governance for fraud and risk, savings and mortgage product managers, those working in compliance and anyone designing online and in-branch customer journeys.

"A helpful session which gave me information to pass on to other areas of the business for further consideration."
