The Kenya National Digital Master Plan 2022-2032 is a sequential progression of the Master Plan 2014-2017, the blueprint for leveraging and deepening the contribution of ICT to accelerate economic growth. It envisages furthering the goal of financial inclusion by focusing on Digital Connectivity, Technology and Innovation, & Digital Infrastructure.
To accelerate this process, sectors such as Banking & Telecom in Kenya are doing away with the traditional process of manual KYC and looking to adopt eKYC or Digital KYC as a better & more efficient alternative to verify the identity and credentials of their customers, users, or partners. Digital Identity verification can help prevent fraud, comply with regulations, enhance security, and improve customer experience.
Accura Scan is a Regtech leader in e-KYC (electronic know your customer), offering an innovative user verification environment that seamlessly integrates into any existing technology covering all the countries globally. Accura Scan uses artificial intelligence driven technologies such as the OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Facial & FingerPrint biometrics, Liveness Checks, ID Forgery Detection to provide a fast, accurate, and secure identity verification solution that can be used remotely and in real time.
Accura Scan works by scanning a national ID card, passport, or any other civil ID using the camera of a mobile device or a web browser. The scanned document is then verified for its authenticity and validity using advanced OCR (optical character recognition) and forgery detection techniques. The document data is then matched with the user’s selfie using face biometrics and liveness check. The user’s identity is then verified against various databases and watchlists, such as Interpol, OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control), and PEP (Politically Exposed Persons), to ensure compliance with KYC (know your customer) and AML (anti-money laundering) regulations.
