The Process of KYC and its Future
Despite being an essential method to keep financial services safe and secure, many methods of Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering compliance take a significant amount of time, effort and money. The process itself has various stages and options which depend on the particular services being offered, the details of individuals involved, or potential risk.

Today, human and business identities are the main focus for these regulations, but as objects and smart devices become a part of the digital economy and financial services system, the amount of identities that will need to be vetted will rapidly grow.
