OCR Labs Achieved Strong Level (IP3) In Australia in March
Back in March, OCR Labs achieved one of its biggest milestones in history. The company became the first private organization to achieve Strong Level (IP3) in Australia.
Under the Trusted Digital Entity Framework, Strong Level (IP3) is the level of any entity. The move from IP2 to IP3 allows OCR Labs to conduct independent testing for its Near Field Communication (NFC) capabilities.
Additional checks, which ensure that the individual is active in society, are also included. Paul Warren-Tape, the company’s head of risk and compliance stated that the elevation from IP2 to IP3 happened in just a couple of months and that is “an exceptional milestone.”
He also added that companies have an ethical responsibility and have to be transparent with their solutions. At the same time, they need to make sure that they preserve their customers’ privacy at any given moment.
The boost to IP3 gives OCR Labs’ customers “trust and confidence” that the company maintains the highest level of security, as well as compliance, according to Warren-Tape.
As a concluding note, Warren-Tape stated that he hopes that other industry regulators “consider the TDIF as best practice.” By doing so, Warren-Tape thinks that they can use technology for remote age and ID verification.
Most recently, OCR Labs partnered with Bloom Money to help diaspora communities manage their money simply and transparently.
