Premium Feature

KYC through Socure is available as a premium feature. Contact Sales to inquire more about access. If you're an existing customer, reach out to your Account Manager or to [email protected] Socure account is required.

Overview
A KYC order can be placed on a business to run a due diligence checks on the people associated with that business. Each person submitted on the business at create time with Socure's required PII (Personal Identification Information) will be run through the Socure KYC bundle configured on their account.

See the people section of the Create A Business page to see information about what KYC fields are required on a person at submit time.

See the person resource for more details about the kyc schema returned for each KYC check.

Decision Module
The Decision module returns a simple interpretable recommendation for a transaction based on underlying logic that defines intermediary outcomes when certain criteria is met. It needs to be enabled and configured per Socure account before it can be used. Once you're signed up for a Socure's decision module guide for more details.

If enabled on your account, a KYC decision will be returned per person and the final aggregation of that result will be returned as an insight on the business.

Device Risk Module
The Sigma Device module uses device fingerprinting technology to create an ID that can be used to identify a device, which is combined with additional PII to link device with an identity. The Device Session ID is generated from one of Socure's client side SDKs. Once you have a Socure account, you can read more about that over here

Progressive KYC

In order to support an efficient onboarding process, we enable customers to run a KYC Order on a business and then an Identity Order (assuming the KYC Order is successful).
To submit a KYC only Order, submit you business as you would normally with the Business's fields and request a KYC Order in the orders section of you request. Once the KYC Order is completed and you'd like to run an Identity Order, add an identity order to the business as outlined in Create an Order.

Note: At the moment, we do not have a way to add Socure's person's fields to a business after it's been created.
