We are delighted that Yoti has been accepted as a partner of the London Digital Security Centre (LDSC). The LDSC is a not-for-profit company, recently founded by the Mayor of London as a joint venture with the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police.

The Centre aims to help businesses, primarily micro to medium sized businesses, operate in a secure digital environment and seeks to support businesses to innovate and grow through embracing digital opportunities.

Over the past few years, the amount of online threats has increased and both businesses and individuals become the victim of cybercrime and online fraud on a daily basis. It’s vital businesses protect themselves against the digital crimes of today so they can succeed and prosper in the future.

Many small and micro-businesses do not have the resources to deal with these threats, so the Centre provides access to carefully selected partners to help businesses improve their resilience to cybercrime. It also delivers a range of masterclasses and workshops across London to give businesses and their employees the knowledge and tools to help them operate safely in the digital world.

As an LDSC partner we are committed to giving businesses and Londoners the technology to help protect themselves against online dangers. Yoti offers businesses three new and innovative solutions:

  1. The Yoti app helps people prove their identity to businesses and other people, online and in person. We verify submitted details against government-issued ID documents, such as a passport or driving licence, and allow people to securely share their details. It’s free for individuals to download and use. Simply download the app from iOS and Google Play stores to know the true identity of people you are dealing with.
  2. Yoti Login is easy to set up for businesses of all sizes and provides biometric security to websites and apps. Customers and employees can login securely using just their Yoti app and a selfie; reducing the risk of compromised passwords and keystroke login fraud.
  3. Yoti Pages allow suppliers and customers to rapidly verify who they are with a simple scan of a Yoti code. Pages can be set up in minutes, are fully customisable and securely hosted by Yoti. They reduce the risk of doing business without the fuss of forms or paper documents.

London has always been at the forefront of new innovative ways to keep Londoners and their businesses safe. With small businesses accounting for over 99% of all private sector businesses, it is vital that technology and advice is available and accessible to these business owners to help tackle emerging cybercrimes and online fraud. The LDSC is a fantastic initiative and everyone at Yoti is proud to play an important role in achieving these aims.
