Quick & Simple Identity Verification
Any time you collect applications for a position, or are interacting with customers virtually, there’s always a chance (even if it’s a remote one) that the person you’re talking to is not being truthful about their identity. There are some industries in which it is particularly important to verify the identity of a person before hiring them or working with them, including financial institutions, government agencies, healthcare organizations and more.
Global Data Fusion, LLC is pleased to provide IdentityDetect® services to companies throughout Louisiana to address this problem. This is a quick and easy way to verify a person’s identity, so you can be completely comfortable doing business with them.
Here’s some information you should know about IdentityDetect® and how it can benefit your business.
What is IdentityDetect®?
IdentityDetect® is a branded web-based test/mobile app developed by Converus that makes identity verification a breeze. Say you have a situation where you’re hiring new employees, and you have your applicants provide general information such as name, address and other standard personal details you’d find on an application. Using that information, customers can then be asked several questions about their identity through the test to confirm they are actually who they say they are.
The IdentityDetect® test measures all of the responses your applicants submit in accordance with a scoring algorithm that produces a credibility score for the person based on their answers. The system produces immediate results, allowing for the process to either proceed virtually uninterrupted or for the applicant’s file to be flagged for further review.

The basic principles of IdentityDetect® are rooted in science, particularly in the study of the brain and cognition. Studies show that lies and deception increase a cognitive load. So, for example, lying about one’s identity would produce measurable changes in the nervous system that indicate increased cognitive load when answering questions. The theory is similar to your standard polygraph lie detector, just a bit more high-tech.
An identity check is exactly what it sounds like—a way of verifying a person is exactly who they say they are. It is not uncommon for people to attempt to pose as other people online or to submit false or fraudulent information with applications. Not every person who submits false information does so with extremely malicious intent, but it should always be a red flag when a person is untruthful about who they are in an application. Identity checks allow business owners, organizations and government agencies to have more confidence that a person is telling the truth about their identity.
