Electronic Identity Verification in Japan
Third Largest Economy
- GDC covers 47% of the Japanese adult population 47%
After the 2008 financial crisis, Japan bounced back with resilience to become the third largest economy. Japan’s regulatory landscape prioritizes compliance and anticipates changes in a digital world.
Although criminal organizations hold a large presence, Japan’s efforts to counter them include regulations such as Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Anti-organized Crime Law, and the Act on Prevention of Transfer of Criminal Proceeds. As companies attempt to increase their global competitiveness, they must be vigilant in how they verify customers and regulate financial institution.
GDC’s Intelligent Name Translation Engine (INTE) uses machine learning mechanisms to translate between Latin and Kanji alphabets to ensure the best name matches possible, regardless of customer input.
