Yoti has a number of formal certifications including ISO 27001, SOC 2, HIPAA compliance, B Corp,.
Yoti’s provision of ID Verification Services, encompassing Age Verification,
eSignatures, Authentication and reusable Digital ID, is certified as compliant with the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 international standard for Information Security. The certificate is valid until 29 April 2024. Yoti undergoes annual audits by an external auditor as a condition of its ISO 27001 certifications. In Yoti’s latest audit in April 2021 it was assessed with zero non-conformities.
Since 2018, we have engaged one of the top four global auditing firms to assess the continuous operation of our security controls, using the highly regarded ISAE 3000 (‘SOC2’) methodology. For our assessment period of January to December 2020, we were pleased to receive a report that found only two partial exceptions in the operation of our security controls. The same auditor validated Yoti's provision of age-check services as being in accordance with the British Standards Institution’s PAS 1296:2018 code of practice.
In July 2019, Yoti was the only company to be certified under the ‘AV’ scheme by UK Government’s Age-Verification Regulator. This scheme was to ensure age-verification providers maintained high standards of privacy and data security.
In October 2019 Yoti was certified under the ‘Age Check Certification Scheme’, allowing us to provide Electronic Identification Verification Technology (e-IDVT) to issuers of ‘PASS’ (Proof of Age Standards Scheme) cards in the UK.
In June 2020 Yoti was awarded the Seal of Approval from the German Association for Voluntary Self-Regulation of Digital Media Service Providers (FSM) to comply with the legal provisions of online child protection in Germany. In December 2020, Yoti’s age verification approaches were approved by the KJM (German Commission for Youth Media Protection).
In the USA, Yoti has been assessed as compliant with the HIPAA ‘Privacy Rule’ and ‘Security Rule’ for storing health data. Put more formally, where Yoti acts as a business associate to ‘covered entities’ storing and processing electronic protected health information of individuals (‘ePHI’), our platform meets the requirements of the US Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (‘HIPAA’). Our first HIPAA assessment was in May 2020. We will repeat our assessment annually.
