FATF Guidance on Digital Identity – White Paper

Home / FATF Guidance on Digital Identity – White Paper

The Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) highly anticipated Guidance on Digital Identity shines a spotlight on the value of accurate, authentic and unaltered geolocation data – beyond a simple IP address – and recognizes geolocation as a key factor in identity verification and effective Customer Due Diligence (CDD).

  • The risks for digital transactions and the important role that geolocation data can play in effective digital ID verification and Customer Due Diligence
  • Multi-factor authentication processes, authenticator technological safeguards and the benefits of continuous authentication
  • How GeoGuard’s solutions can provide accurate and unaltered geolocation data for more effective and true ID verification

Utilizing accurate geolocation data as part of the digital ID authentication process strengthens financial institutions and payment providers’ ability to create a more holistic view of client and patron behavior, which is essential to evaluating risk and potential suspicious activity.
