Yoti Guardian Council

Yoti Guardians are influential individuals who ensure that Yoti always seeks to do the right thing, and that we are transparent about what we are doing and why. Guardians will bring their expert, independent perspectives and skills to three main responsibilities:

  1. Making sure Yoti optimises its products, services and partnerships to make life simpler for its user community.
  2. Ensuring Yoti stays consistent with its mission to build trust and give the user control of their personal data.
  3. Reporting any breaches of trust and representing any concerns shared by a significant percentage of the user community.
