    • Document particulars are captured
    • Photo particulars are captured

Electronic Verification

IDU will verify the identity of 4.4 billion individuals within the APAC region. All from one single platform.

The majority of Data Zoo’s data sources are derived directly from government agencies. Data Zoo realises that not all data sources are perfect and adopts a proactive approach to working with Government bodies or agencies and our suppliers to continually improve the quality and accuracy of the data received.

The Data Zoo IDU Solution ensures eIDV and KYC conditions are met and an individual’s identity is validated and correct.

Electronic verification as per the FATF and APG provisions requires financial institutions verify a customer’s identity (DOB, full name and/or address) from independent and reliable data sources.

Another critical consideration is the risk profiling that is required as part of the customer onboarding process (PEP Sanctions Watch List Screening).

  • Verification of an individual’s Full Name, DOB and government ID document number and, if available, a person’s living address.
    • Electronic verification of individual’s details against multiple reliable and independent data sources held and accessed by Data Zoo
    • Customised matching rules
  • Screening of an individual’s information against PEP (Politically Exposed Person) and Sanctions Watchlists.

Global Screening

Data Zoo has access, the most detailed, real time and accurate global coverage of senior Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), officially sanctioned individuals and persons of Special Interest available today to ensure that you ‘Know Your Customer’. All updated daily.

The service is a fully configurable platform to give customers the complete flexibility with matching rules (watchlist categories) for onboarding or for ongoing due diligence requirements.

  • PEPs and their Relatives and Close Associates (RCA’s)
    Detailed profiles of senior PEPs, their relatives, close associates and companies they are linked to, from every country in the world.

Capitalising on the 40+ non-Latin scripts available, Data Zoo provides the ability for you to scan against names in their original script, such as Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Korean, Japanese, Thai and other non-Latin / Roman scripts.

Scan real time or through our batch environment. Also have the capability to Whitelist creation, based on previous due diligence decisions, to eliminate future false positive matches.

Ongoing Due Diligence

The concept of data ‘recency’, whereby the age and update frequency of data needs to be considered when incorporating data as part of a customer due diligence decision process.

In certain circumstances, customers may need to be re-verified or additional information required.

Conducting ongoing due diligence on the business relationship and scrutiny of transactions undertaken throughout the course of that relationship to ensure that the transactions being conducted are consistent with the institution’s knowledge of the customer, their business and risk profile, including, where necessary, the source of funds

With our Global Screening solution (PEP and Sanctions) we have the ability to provide batch processing of existing and pre-screened customers.

Pre-screened customers can be ‘whitelisted’ as individuals that have come through the exception process but have been authenticated as not being relevant to your customer record.
