Yoti, First Advantage & Disclosure and Barring Service: The future of background screening and digital identity verification

Earlier this year, the UK Government published plans to build a UK digital identity and attributes trust framework. The framework aims to build trust around the use of digital identities and deliver standards for how organisations should safeguard customer data and protect privacy. 

This trust framework falls in line with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) announcement of their plan to introduce digital identity verification during the screening process. These changes will impact how your team carries out background screening checks. 


Digital Identity is on the rise. Are you prepared?

A digital identity is a representation of your real identity and who you are in a digital world. 

We’ll be taking part in a webinar with First Advantage and special guests from Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to discuss the new world of digital identity in background screening. Together we’ll explore how technology will streamline employee onboarding and help reduce the risk of identity fraud.


During the discussion, you will learn: 

  • Why digital identity is essential to DBS checks.
  • How the new legislation will enable the introduction of digital identity for criminal record checks.
  • What digital identity is and how it will impact background screening
  • How to bring it to life with a live technology demonstration by Yoti.


The webinar will take place Wednesday 24th November.
