The Evolution of KYC May Be Sooner Than We Think
Back at the beginning of the year we featured an article examining KYC and its future. Not, just a few months later, we find that the concept of increasingly frequent and important KYC checks are becoming necessary for remote verification as many people and businesses change the way they work to avoid the spread of the coronavirus.
This trend and alteration to the normal routine for work could actually be beneficial as we move forward with technology and societal values change. The imminent arrival of the Internet of Everything and increasing numbers of smart devices will all require the infrastructure and security practices we are now putting into effect, and KYC and identity verification is a core component of this.
