About this webinar

There’s been such a rapid shift from manual to digital ID checks – accelerated by the social restrictions of the 2020s. Yet without a standard in digital ID, it's been difficult for lawyers to know whether the tools they’re using are sufficient to protect their business and clients from fraud.

HM Land Registry has recognised this challenge and is launching a set of requirements, collectively known as the Digital ID Standard to provide solid guidance to solicitors.
