LexisNexis Risk Solutions has received a National Institute of Standards and Technology certification from SAFE-BioPharma for its platform designed to detect identity fraud.

The NIST SP 800-63A certification at Identity Assurance Level 2 allows LexisNexis Risk Solutions to offer its Risk Defense Platform to federal agencies seeking to implement identity authentication tools and other digital identity services, LexisNexis Risk Solutions said Tuesday.

“Federal agencies need more robust identity proofing capabilities to combat the constantly-evolving identity theft and fraud schemes that cost millions of dollars annually,” said Haywood Talcove, CEO of government segment at LexisNexis Risk Solutions and LexisNexis Special Services Inc.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions RDP is a set of identity proofing tools that agencies can access via a single system to validate self-reported data and identities and employs a policy decision engine to help agencies manage fraud and identity rules.
