Covid-19 has accelerated the need for companies, from a wide range of sectors, to verify people quickly and efficiently. Online retail has boomed, with eCommerce projected to grow by a further 14.3% in 2021. The risk of fraud has simultaneously risen. The Annual Fraud Report by IDology, a GBG company, revealed that the number of companies reporting fraud attempts increased by 53% in 2020, when compared to the previous year. The report also revealed that identity verification is now the number one challenge for businesses in addressing fraud.
