Amsterdam, April 29 2020 – The impact of COVID-19 on the global community is enormous. With the world in lockdown, our lives and business are actively transitioning to online spaces. The increasing use of and demand for new digital services and mobile devices causes fraud prevention to be more complex as it becomes more difficult to verify individuals through faceless channels.

As a response to COVID-19, organisations of all shapes and sizes are eagerly looking for digital solutions as alternatives to their regular business practices or services, with, for example, universities moving exams online. Other organisations, for example in healthcare, logistics or law enforcement, are now trying to remotely identify, screen and serve their relief workers, temporary staff, customers, patients, visitors or students. Any helping hand in the battle against coronavirus is welcome. And yet, the need to be safe and prevent fraud remains crucial. Now more than ever, there is the need to proof identities accurately and efficiently through secure digital channels. Keesing is committed to contributing to the global effort against COVID-19 by making its identity verification services and databases freely available to any of these essential organisations and their invaluable workers around the world. The Keesing team will help these organisations integrate the identity verification solutions and set up effective remote screening and verification procedures.
