// The issue of trust in distance selling
Verifying the identity of a new customer remotely is of utmost importance for organisations that sell online, since there is a high risk of identity fraud.
It’s not enough to have new customers; you have to have the right ones!
This need is reinforced when you are subject to regulatory obligations, as is the case for banks and insurance companies (KYC / 5th LCB-FT Directive).
There are several solutions at hand, such as substantial electronic identity or the implementation of additional vigilance measures (Article 561-5-2 of the Monetary and Financial Code). In practice, however, the underlying techniques are not easy to apply.
Whether it is to control fraud or meet regulatory obligations, the identity verification solution developed by Netheos continually adapts in accordance with technological and regulatory developments.
This allows you to concentrate on your business, with the assurance that you are in compliance with these developments.
