We are thrilled to announce that Credas has reached a remarkable milestone – a milestone that reaffirms our position as a pioneering Identity Service Provider (IDSP) in the UK. Credas have become the first provider in the UK to achieve the highest level of confidence for ID verification certification under the UK Government’s Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework. This achievement underscores our unwavering commitment to innovation, security, and cutting-edge technology in the field of identity verification.
This momentous accomplishment is the result of extensive efforts and dedication from our team. We underwent a thorough evaluation of our newly unveiled platform against the stringent standards set forth by the Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework. Through this evaluation, we have been certified to achieve a “Very High” level of confidence in verifying individuals’ identities. As pioneers in the industry, we have not only met but exceeded these benchmarks, positioning Credas as a frontrunner in the rapidly evolving landscape of digital identity verification.
It’s worth noting that the Trust Framework, overseen by the Department of Science, Innovation, and Technology, is on track to become legally binding upon the royal assent of the UK’s Data Protection and Digital Information (No.2) bill.
The UK government’s Good Practice Guide 45, proposes 4 different levels of confidence for ID verification, with the “Very High” level symbolizing the pinnacle of assurance. Our success in attaining this standard equips Credas’ advanced technology to facilitate Right-to-Work checks and Enhanced DBS checks even in remote scenarios. This achievement is a testament to our ongoing investment in our platform, including features like customisable branding and a fortified identity verification suite. These additions ensure that our clients can confidently authenticate individuals’ identities with the highest degree of certainty.
In a world where digital interactions are becoming increasingly prevalent, our accomplishment exemplifies the trust and reliability needed to make remote identity verification not only possible but also exceptionally secure. Credas continues to pave the way for a future where individuals and organisations can engage confidently using the power of digital identity to streamline transactions.
