WHO ARE CREDAS
To allow customers to automate their customer onboarding and compliance checks through the use of slick, simple and user friendly technology.
As a start-up, Credas provided a facial recognition ID Verification service, which quickly grew with additional checks allowing clients to conduct full Anti-Money Laundering, Know Your Customer and Right to Work/Rent checks. The new Credas 3.0 platform propels the business forward with a full onboarding solution which includes smart data capture forms, eSign, process builder and custom branding modules, all available via a Portal or through an API integration.
HOW WE DO IT ALL
Our ID checking service verifies the person against an identity document using biometric facial recognition and our technology confirms the identity document is genuine. We use a number of data sources to run additional checks such as Proof of Address, Politically Exposed Persons (PEP’s) and Sanctions List checks so clients can meet their compliance commitments. Results are served up in real-time via our Credas Portal or an API integration and data stored securely in the cloud, available to you when and where you need it.

We take data protection seriously
Here at Credas, we know that you wouldn’t purchase a property unless you were satisfied with its foundations, and so we understand that you wouldn’t use a new service that captures your sensitive, personal data unless you were satisfied the service had appropriate privacy and security measures in place. All captured data is held, encrypted, on enterprise-grade cloud servers based in the UK. These servers are owned and operated by one of well known global leader in computing.
We also operate on the principle of “least privilege”; meaning our staff are provided with the minimum permissions needed to fulfil their function. In practice, this means that the likes of those in our Human Resources department have zero access to the databases containing your data – because there is no need for them too. Of course, threats aren’t only internal, so we apply robust solutions to prevent access to our systems from external parties. Obviously, we don’t want to give any potential adversaries hints or tips, so we won’t disclose anything other than that.
To demonstrate this, we submit to audits by assessment bodies accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS); the UK’s only government-recognised accreditation body. Accreditations held include:
- ISO 27001 – this is an internationally recognised standard of adherence to information security management and security techniques
- Cyber Essentials Plus – this is a scheme backed by the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre and demonstrates an organisation’s defences against cyber-attacks
COMMITTED TO INCLUSIVITY IN THE WORKPLACE
