OCR Labs receives first TDIF accreditation
The federal government has announced OCR Labs as the first entirely private Australian-based identity provider for the Trusted Digital Identity Framework.
OCR Labs has been accredited through the TDIF to provide digital identity services for the private sector.
The certification will allow customers across the private sector to use OCR Labs’ identity services to verify and protect identity information related to their customers.
The company provides a fully automated remote identity verification and fraud detection service suitable for use across multiple industries.
Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business Stuart Robert said the accreditation is a key milestone in the development and deployment of the TDIF platform.
“We want Australians to have confidence that their information is private and secure, regardless of who holds it. It has become increasingly important in this digital age to be able to establish trust, particularly online,” he said.
“Digital Identity underpins the government's Digital Economy Strategy that will allow Australian businesses like OCR Labs, and in particular small business, to capitalise on the opportunities that digital technologies are creating, enabling them to grow and create jobs as part of Australia’s economic recovery.”
The TDIF program forms part of the federal government’s $800 million Digital Business Plan. The digital identity program is being led by the Digital Transformation Agency.
