TrustID, market leader in identity verification, has joined the Open Identity Exchange (OIX) community to better understand the developing opportunities and to play a key role in the ongoing evolution of digital ID verification.

A specialist in the verification of identity documents since 2013, strengthened with biometrics, fraud detection and data checks, TrustID is trusted by thousands of HR, compliance, fraud, and security teams across more than 2000 organisations of all sizes in both the public and private sectors.

Thanks to its unique combination of leading technology and team of highly-trained human experts, TrustID was one of the first to be certified as an Identity Service Provider (IDSP) for the Home Office Right to Work, Right to Rent and DBS Digital Schemes.

David Park, Chief Strategy Officer at TrustID:

“The foundation of any digital identity is robust physical identity verification during enrolment. We believe our services will be more relevant than ever when it comes to issuing a digital identity. As technology evolves and remote, online, and digital identity verification become increasingly important, we are keen to identify new opportunities for the continued development of our services. The OIX community is a great place to be able to do that. As one of the first providers in the UK to be certified under the UK trust framework, we also want to be part of the collective OIX voice that is helping to shape the UK’s trust framework.”

“Our work is playing a key role in influencing and shaping trust frameworks around the globe, including the architecture of the trust framework in the UK, with the ultimate goal to ensure digital ID works well for every party in the digital ID ecosystem. We are delighted to be able to welcome TrustID to the OIX community and we are confident that they will bring as much valuable insight to our mission as we will to their vision and growth plans.”
