ATLANTA — LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced that Tracy Manning, director of financial crime compliance at LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, and her team were spotlighted in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN)-sponsored digital identity proofing Tech Sprint.
The Tech Sprint brought together a diverse set of stakeholders across various sectors to develop a “scalable, cost-efficient, risk-based solution to measure the effectiveness of digital identity proofing to ensure that individuals who remotely present themselves for financial activities are who they claim to be.” Nearly sixty participants took part in the Tech Sprint from March 11 to April 4, forming eight teams of experts.
The organizers of the Tech Sprint selected Tracy’s team, Team ConfIDence, made up of seven individuals representing financial institutions, non-bank vendors and policy experts, for the creativity prize for its suggestion of a regulator-sponsored ID verification (IDV) effectiveness scorecard and testing sandbox designed to drive rapid innovation in effective and compliant identity proofing for remote onboarding within digital channels.
The ConfIDdence scorecard provides an unbiased, credible and inclusive methodology for assessing the confidence of IDV in digital channels. By providing a scoring rubric, users can evaluate assurance, regulatory compliance, inclusion, security and adoptability.
“It is thrilling to receive this recognition from the FDIC and FinCEN for Team ConfIDence’s creative work to help shape the future of customer identification,” said Manning. “In my role at LexisNexis Risk Solutions, I see every day how seamless customer experiences can and should co-exist with effective financial crime controls.
