As a company who wants to support businesses expanding globally, and verifying as many potential customers as possible we are always pushing to add new languages and documents. Our verification flow is available in 40 languages, and we support over 10,000 documents, but until recently we couldn’t fully verify documents that have personal data, like names, written in Cyrillic characters.
But not anymore. We’re happy to announce that we’ve now rolled out Cyrillic document support for our clients, giving wider access to identity documents and supporting users who couldn’t previously get verified, because they had only Cyrillic-based documents, to go through the online identity verification process seamlessly where languages using Cyrillic alphabets are spoken.
This update to Veriff’s products is a huge advantage for potential customers who may only have Cyrillic documents and who couldn’t previously get verified with Veriff — they can now go through verification seamlessly. For now, it’s available for enterprise clients at their request, and comes at no additional cost to your current Veriff package.
While Veriff supports Cyrillic documents, it is not a default approach for all of our clients. Businesses using Veriff’s solutions are enabled to choose whether to support Cyrillic documents, based on their own needs and regulatory requirements.
Veriff strives to be the global solution to online identity verification, and we will continue to expand our offerings to make it possible for all businesses and users to safely live online.
EDD in banking involves gathering information in order to verify the identity of customers and calculate the exact level of money laundering risk each customer poses. During the EDD process, the customer is asked for a much greater amount of information than they are during the CDD process, as this information can be used to mitigate the risks involved.
When carrying out due diligence, a financial institution must determine whether they should perform customer due diligence (CDD) or enhanced due diligence (EDD). This is because FATF guidance suggests that companies should adopt a risk-based approach to due diligence that reflects the specific level of risk that each individual customer presents.
Synthetic fraud is incredibly dangerous and is a major problem facing the financial sector. Unlike third-party fraud, where an entire identity is stolen and used to defraud enterprises and victims, synthetic fraud frequently has no specific consumer victim.
