Yoti blogs about security standards compliance

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

Yoti received a flawless report as it achieved SOC (Service Organization Control) 2 compliance on its first attempt, the company revealed in a blog post on the importance of standards compliance.

The post describes three different security standards held by Yoti, and how they help ensure that customer and user data is protected.

Yoti explains that ISO 27001 is a wholistic standard for information security management, which applies to a range of things from physical access control at Yoti facilities to the selection of partners and suppliers. SOC 2 standards are among the most respected and rigorous auditing standards used in business, according to the post, and apply to five different areas; security, confidentiality, processing integrity, availability, and privacy. Yoti holds SOC 2 Type 1 (security), and says its degree of success on its first attempt is “almost unheard of.”

The company also holds Public Availability Specification (PAS) 1296 certification, confirming its compliance with the code of practice for safe online age checking for restricted goods and services. “It’s all about trust. Trust that an age check performed using Yoti is reliable,” according to the blog. “For example, if you’re a parent whose child uses Yoti for proof of age accessing child-only forums or online games, you can be confident that environment is only accessed by others their age.”

Yoti revealed in November that it will provide AI age estimation for self-checkout purchases from one of the world’s largest retailers, and earlier this month appointed UK policing veteran Gordon Scobbie as Regional Business Growth and Partnerships Executive for Scotland.
