Data Zoo Achieves UK Government Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework Certification

Data Zoo is now certified by the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework, a world-leading framework for trusted digital identity service providers.

# Corporate

We are proud to announce that Data Zoo has successfully achieved certification as part of the UK Government’s Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework (UKDIATF), a world-leading framework for trusted digital identity service providers.

The framework outlines a clear set of rules for organisations to provide secure and trustworthy digital identity solutions. It aims to make it easier for consumers to use services that enable them to prove who they are while reducing the risk of data breaches and poor security measures.

Data Zoo undertook an extensive independent third-party audit of its technology and security processes to demonstrate that it can safely manage a user’s digital identities and attributes. As a result, Data Zoo has gained the status of an identity service provider (IDSP) for Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and Right to Work and Right to Rent checks across the UK. The audit also included the role of Attributes Service provider, for which Data Zoo has fulfilled the criteria.

Dr Memoona J. Anwar, Chief Compliance & Innovations Officer at Data Zoo, said: “The Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework certification marks a significant milestone in digital identity policy in the UK and has set an exemplary precedent for global regulations.”

“This certification not only highlights Data Zoo’s cutting-edge technology and digital identity expertise but also reflects our dedication to compliance and adherence to regulations. It is a fantastic achievement that strengthens our position as an industry leader and reinforces our dedication to providing secure and reliable digital identity solutions now and into the future.”

One clear advantage of choosing a UKDIATF-certified identity service provider (IDSP) is the high encryption and data management standards. To gain certification, an IDSP must successfully meet rigorous standards for safety and security when handling personal data. This provides reassurance that all requirements set by the UK Government have been met. A certified-IDSP helps alleviate the burden of compliance and supplier due diligence and provides peace of mind regarding a provider’s technology, security and processes.
