RapidVerify Sets the Gold Standard for Protecting Consumer Data

RapidVerify Sets the Gold Standard for Protecting Consumer Data

Identity and income verification serves an essential purpose in today's digital economy. However, the collection of personal information also introduces risks around privacy and security. That's why responsible technology leaders aim to limit their custody of sensitive consumer data.

At RapidVerify, we believe individuals should maintain ownership over their own identities and financial information. That's why we've instituted an industry-leading non-retention data policy to earn the public's trust as a steward of personal information. Read on to understand how our approach goes above and beyond in safeguarding your data.

The Dangers of Unprotected Personal Data

First, it's important to recognize the intrinsic value of identity and income details which makes them highly vulnerable. Particulars like SSNs, bank account numbers, employment history, and biometrics offer tremendous utility for administering digital services.

However, aggregated together, these datapoints also enable potent fraud and abuse. A 2022 Federal Trade Commission study found that identity theft accounted for over 45% of total fraud losses as cybercriminals constantly seek to exploit consumer data.

Surprisingly, users often unknowingly sign away rights to their data forever without reading terms and conditions. But consumers should never have to forfeit personal privacy for digital conveniences.

RapidVerify's Non-Retention Policy Restores Control

That's why RapidVerify embraces privacy by design through our non-retention policy. As the only real-time verification provider with a zero-data storage guarantee, we empower consumers to share information without worrying about long term risks.

Our automated systems instantly validate identities or authenticate credentials when transactions occur then permanently dispose of any cached copies. No consumer information touches a hard drive or resides anywhere in our infrastructure. Even our administrators can't access sensitive data during or after proofs.

Once identity or income checks complete, RapidVerify's architecture ensures no residual consumer data persists anywhere within our systems. Our workloads employ end-to-end encryption safeguards - at rest, in transit, and at runtime - to protect information through the entire verification flow. Any temporary copies cached in memory get permanently erased after serving their confirmation purpose. Not even our own analysts can retrieve these fully scrubbed workloads post-proof. Our rigorous data minimization principles deny bad actors the streams needed to steal identities or enable financial fraud in the first place.

Our non-retention architecture thus denies bad actors the very data streams needed to steal identities or enable financial fraud in the first place. We close off potential attack vectors that centralized databases inherently possess. Removing stored consumer information also eliminates insider threats from staff negligence or cyber security practices.

Surpassing Industry Norms

While RapidVerify embraces consumer-first principles at our core, we recognize some consumer data retention remains standard practice across most verification services to streamline recurring screens. However, the status quo needlessly exposes individuals to future harm by normalizing indefinite data custody.

In contrast, RapidVerify's transparent non-retention policy declines any rights to collecting your data as our property. We simply confirm your identity or income temporarily when requested then relinquish access when no longer necessary. You maintain full autonomy over your information without worrying how it might resurface down the line.

Our advisors considered every way to architect verification to facilitate legitimate needs of clients while preventing misuse. Explore our methodology whitepapers to understand exactly how RapidVerify achieves both objectives responsibly.

Enhancing Trust with Consumers

RapidVerify's non-retention policy sets us apart competitively while enhancing public confidence in our brand. Consumers participate in our services knowing we refusing to perpetuate systemic privacy violations that have eroded institutional trust. Our integrity and restraint offers a credible path forward for ethical technology stewardship.

Knowing RapidVerify will never store or sell your information provides peace of mind throughout the verification process. The extensive precautions we implemented to safeguard data also speak to our commitment to consumer interests beyond pure transactionality.

While no solution eliminates risks entirely, our checks provide necessary confirmations of identity or income without forcing permanent surrender of privacy in return. We aim for clients to view RapidVerify as partners rather than adversaries on their digital journeys.

Moving our Industry Forward

RapidVerify urges fellow verification providers to reassess existing environments that leave consumer data perpetually exposed. We should collectively raise security baselines to neutralize threats rather than normalize risky status quos.

Until then, we encourage consumers to inquire about data policies before submitting personal information to systems retaining it indefinitely without sufficient cause. Avoid vague justification of "future serviceability" that needlessly endangers you.

Welcome a New Era of Responsible Verification

RapidVerify believes individuals using digital services should not have to trade away personal privacy and security without conscious consent. That is why we implemented structural safeguards like non-retention data policies as the common sense standard - rather than the exception.
