Cybercrime figures are high in recent times, especially since the pandemic, with network vulnerabilities and mining of consumers’ personal data being frequently reported. According to the NortonLifeLock Cyber Safety Insights Report 2019, 39% of respondents in India were impacted by identity theft last year alone. Malware attacks can allow cybercriminals to take control over your systems and access your personal information and financial data, which can lead to crimes based on identity theft. In this age of digitization, data and personally identifiable information are of great value to cybercriminals, as they can be sold to data brokers while doing any type of advertising or marketing. Cyber Safety, therefore, has never been more important.

Video KYC in combating ID fraud

Ankit Ratan, cofounder of Signzy says, “The video-based customer identification process has gained a lot of attention majorly from banking and other financial institutions. The digitalization of the KYC verification process by using video into your onboarding process can save BFSIs significant amounts of time and money. It can help them deliver an end-to-end customer engagement for a seamless onboarding experience while ensuring quicker KYC completion at a lower cost and higher customer satisfaction. Another benefit of using video in the KYC verification process is that it can help to detect fraud or any malicious activity.”
