Toronto, Ontario - October 25, 2016

Toronto, Oct. 25, 2016 – Securefact today announced it is launching its SIDni™ (Secure Identification Network for Individuals) solution, which helps financial institutions meet Know-Your-Customer (KYC) requirements. This announcement was made at the ACAMs 4th Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference Canada in Toronto. 

SIDni™ provides instant verification of individual names, addresses, date of birth and a three-year credit file existence against multiple authoritative databases to enable fast, customer friendly account onboarding. It replaces manual or fragmented processes that are used by financial institutions to verify a customer’s identity.

“It’s essential that financial institutions are assured that they are ascertaining the identity of the individual being onboarded,” says David Sudbury, President and CEO of Securefact. “SIDni is designed to be dynamic so, as FINTRAC guidelines evolve, SIDni will adapt to the changes, too.”

SIDni’s launch follows updates to Canadian anti-money laundering (AML) regulations (PCMLTFA) in late June 2016 that allow for customers to be identified remotely, without having to provide identification documents in person, in order to open an account with a financial institution. This paves the way for significant growth of the digital economy and Securefact is further enabling this growth with its SIDni platform.

SIDni can also be used to validate signing authorities within Securefact’s Attestanet™ commercial account onboarding solution.

Key features of SIDni include:

  • Meets FINTRAC Guidelines for customer-not-present ID verification
  • Provides instant validation against authoritative data sources of:
    • Name
    • Address
    • Date of birth
    • Three-year credit file existence
  • Validates address existence and type (business / residential)
  • Integrates through web services (API)
  • Ensures high ID verification rate by using multiple sources (credit file or dual source process)

SIDni will be available in November 2016.

Securefact lance SIDniMC pour aider les institutions financières à effectuer les vérifications d’identité 

Toronto, le 25 octobre 2016. – Securefact a annoncé aujourd’hui le lancement de sa solution SIDniMC (« Secure Identification Network for Individuals » ou réseau d’identification sécurisé pour particuliers), qui aide les institutions financières à répondre aux exigences de connaissance du client. Cette annonce a aussi été faite à la 4e conférence annuelle de l’ACAMS sur la lutte contre le blanchiment d’argent et les crimes financiers, qui a eu lieu à Toronto. 

SIDniMC permet de vérifier instantanément le nom d’une personne, son adresse, sa date de naissance et l’existence de son dossier de crédit depuis au moins trois ans auprès de plusieurs sources faisant autorité pour favoriser une ouverture de compte rapide et conviviale. Cette solution remplace les procédés manuels ou fragmentés utilisés par les institutions financières pour vérifier l’identité des clients.

« Il est essentiel pour les institutions financières d’avoir la certitude que l’identité des clients qui ouvrent un compte a été bien vérifiée », dit David Sudbury, président et chef de la direction de Securefact. « SIDni est une solution dynamique, donc à mesure que les directives du CANAFE changeront, cette solution évoluera aussi. »

Le lancement de SIDni fait suite à la mise à jour apportée aux règlements canadiens sur le recyclage des produits de la criminalité (Loi sur le recyclage des produits de la criminalité et le financement des activités terroristes) à la fin de juin 2016, règlements qui permettent de vérifier l’identité des clients à distance, sans qu’ils aient à fournir de pièces d’identité en personne, pour ouvrir un compte auprès d’une institution financière. Cela ouvre la voie à une croissance importante pour l’économie numérique, et Securefact contribue à cette croissance avec sa plate-forme SIDni.

SIDni peut également être utilisé pour vérifier l’identité des signataires autorisés dans le cadre de la solution d’ouverture de compte entreprise AttestanetMC de Securefact.

Voici quelques caractéristiques clés de SIDni :

  • Respect des directives du CANAFE en ce qui a trait à la vérification de l’identité des clients
  • Vérification instantanée des éléments suivants auprès de sources de données sûres :
  • Nom
  • Adresse
  • Date de naissance
  • Existence du dossier de crédit depuis au moins trois ans
  • Validation de l’existence de l’adresse et du type d’adresse (commerciale / personnelle)
  • Intégration aux services Web (API)
  • Vérification plus précise de l’identité grâce à la consultation de sources multiples (dossier de crédit ou deux sources)

SIDni sera offert en novembre 2016.

À propos de Securefact :

Securefact est une entreprise de confiance qui fournit à sa clientèle des services sur demande et gérés en matière de connaissance du client, de conformité réglementaire et de portefeuilles de prêts garantis.

Lister brings more than 25 years of sales experience from two large financial businesses, Thomson Reuters and D&B Canada. Most recently, Lister was National Sales Leader, Software Sales at Thomson Reuters, helping with the Canadian launch of a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and professional services offering.  He spent 16 years at D&B Canada, working in eight different sales and sales management roles.

Suzanne Seto has been named Senior Director, Financial Crime Risk Management, and was previously at Honda Canada, where she had served as Compliance and Ethics Secretariat and Manager of Corporate Governance.

She’s extremely articulate, well-organized and has extensive contacts locally and internationally. She’s playing a pivotal role in managing our growing Financial Crime Risk Management business.”

Since 2013, Seto also is an Adjunct Professor at the Institut Superieur Europeen de Gestion in Paris, teaching in the Enterprise Risk Management MBA Program and she is just about to start teaching enterprise risk management in the Master of Financial Accountability (MFAcc) program at York University.
