Embrace the Future of Insurance compliance: Building Trust and Efficiency with biometrics

by | Identity Verification

In the realm of insurance, where trust and security are paramount, the winds of change are blowing stronger than ever. As a dedicated compliance professional responsible for ensuring the security, legitimacy, and seamless experience of policy issuance and claims processing within the insurance sector, you hold the key to steering your company toward a future where innovation and security harmonize seamlessly.

Digital verification technologies, encompassing KYC, authentication, and signature processes are the beacon that will guide you through this transformative journey, where biometrics step in as a real game-changer.


Pioneering the path to trust in the insurance industry

At the heart of every successful insurance operation lies trust.

  • Trust that the information provided by policyholders is accurate,
  • Trust that claims are genuine,
  • Trust that client data is secure,
  • And trust that your clients are who they say they are..

Increasing cyber threats and fraud threaten us daily, thus cultivating and preserving trust has never been more challenging, or more critical.

Technologies that allow to perform an automatic Digital Onboarding process offer a solution that aligns smoothly with your compliance objectives. By integrating advanced AI verification technologies and biometric signatures, insurers can build a robust and secure identity verification process. This process not only ensures that customers are who they claim to be but also prevents fraudulent activities right from the start.

Nevertheless, you also need to have trust that these technologies can genuinely enhance your processes while helping you achieve your goals. Therefore, let’s delve into some examples where our technologies can aid insurance companies in their onboarding, signing, and authentication processes, whether in person or remotely:


Identity verification use cases in the insurance industry

Signing face-to-face documents in offices

The sales representatives of the insurance company can use their mobile devices to complete the entire contracting process in the offices. Their sales management app could integrate our digital signature solution, allowing them to sign agreements with a biometric signature, such as policies and accident reports.

The tablet used by the agent records the signature of the policyholder or insured party, and this signature carries full legal validity.


In-person sales outside the office

When insurance agents are conducting in-person sales outside the office, customers will have the option to purchase new products and sign these contracts digitally: They can easily scan identity documents using a tablet, and then a PDF contract can be automatically filled with the data collected from the identity document.

After reviewing the contract, the new client can seamlessly sign it with a handwritten biometric signature, which is considered an Electronic Advanced Signature in accordance with eIDAS.


Voice recognition for call centers

Insurance companies can use voice recognition to identify customers when they call their call centers to resolve any issues using their voice through voice recognition.

Santalucía was a pioneer in providing the first customer service in Spain, recognizing customers by voice through a predefined phrase previously registered in the system. When an agent answers a phone call, there is no need to identify the customer, saving both costs and time.


Biometric Access to customer area

Customers using online platforms are increasingly demanding swift and secure access to their online applications or customer areas. Biometric unlocking of the application addresses this issue, enabling policyholders to conduct transactions within the platform with utmost security. 

With our digital onboarding and biometric authentication solutions, customer identities can be verified during the registration process or when policy conditions change, ensuring a seamless customer experience.  


Identity verification in managing incidents and accidents via videocall

The management of incidents and accidents has evolved with the implementation of digital solutions, such as video expert reports. However, assistance can only be provided if the person receiving the service is correctly identified.

The process is straightforward: The affected individual is identified through biometrics at the beginning of the call or video call. This biometric identification process can be done via face or voice recognition. Afterward, the expert conducts a virtual inspection of the location where the event occurred to assess damages and evaluate the situation. This streamlined management facilitates fluid communication, ensuring an effective intervention and increasing the First Call Resolution (FCR) rate.


Contracting an insurance product through video-identification

When remotely contracting a sensitive insurance product, controls (video identification) can be conducted to ensure the security of the process. Video-identification can be of two types:

  • Attended video-identification (the process is guided by an agent)
  • Unattended video-identification (an automated process without agent)

SEPBLAC advices companies to implement identification measures through video-identification.

Our solutions aid in detecting suspicious activities by verifying customer identities and cross-referencing them against watchlists and databases, reducing the risk of being unwittingly involved in illegal financial transactions.
  • GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Compliance: GDPR is designed to protect the personal data of EU citizens. Our solutions prioritize data privacy and protection, ensuring that customer information is handled in line with GDPR requirements, obtaining necessary consents, and providing customers with transparency and control over their data.
  • eIDAS (Electronic Identification, Authentication, and Trust Services) Compliance: eIDAS regulation establishes a framework for secure electronic transactions and e-signatures. Our solutions align with eIDAS standards, offering secure and legally recognized digital signatures and authentication methods that enhance the security and legality of digital interactions.
  • SEBPLAC (Spanish Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Law) Compliance: Compliance with SEBPLAC in Spain is crucial for combating money laundering and terrorism financing. Our solutions contribute to SEBPLAC compliance by verifying customer identities, detecting potential risks, and ensuring that your insurance operations remain aligned with Spanish regulatory standards.

By integrating these compliance standards into our identity verification solutions, we provide insurance companies with a comprehensive approach to risk mitigation and regulatory adherence.
