Understanding Digital Identity

A Digital Identity represents an individual's persona as used by them for online transactions or interactions. It involves the use of digital technology to verify and authenticate a person's identity through various means, such as documentation, personal data, biometric data, behavioural data, and more. Digital Identity has revolutionised the way we verify identities, making it faster, more accurate, and incredibly efficient.

In a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, the use of Digital Identity plays a crucial role in ensuring the integrity of the verification process. When an applicant submits their documents for a DBS check with us, we use Digital Identity technology to cross-reference personal details provided by the applicant with the information presented on their identity documents. This includes comparing names, birth dates, addresses, and other relevant data. Our Digital Identity technology can identify any discrepancies, thereby validating the authenticity of the documents and the veracity of the information provided. This method not only helps to prevent fraud but also streamlines the process by eliminating the need for physical document verification, making the DBS check more efficient and secure.

At Secure Screening Services, we use Digital Identity as the cornerstone of our services, enabling swift and reliable verification for background screening checks.

FAQs

What is the IDVT and how does it relate to the Right to Work in the UK?

IDVT, or Identification Document Validation Technology, is a new requirement in the UK for verifying the right to work of prospective employees. This technology, used through a Digital Identity service provider (IDSP), allows employers to verify that potential employees have the necessary documentation to legally work in the UK. This applies to all businesses, regardless of size. This process can be used for any British and Irish citizen who holds a valid passport, including Irish passport cards

Why have the rules for Right to Work checks changed in the UK?

The changes to the Right to Work checks were introduced due to the difficulties posed by the pandemic, which made face-to-face checks difficult. The government initially introduced the option to verify an employee's right to work through video calls, also known as adjusted checks. However, concerns about the increased potential for fraudulent applications led to the introduction of the IDVT. Starting from 30 September 2022, employers will need to conduct checks in one of three ways: a manual, in-person check, a check using IDVT via a third-party provider, or a Home Office online right to work check.
