VerifyMy's Commitment to Responsible Tech, Accountability & Collaboration

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the digital age, the need for regulation to protect people online has become not just a necessity but a critical foundation for a secure online environment. Regulation, when effectively enforced, serves as a shield against a myriad of threats that users face online.

At VerifyMy, we believe that the success of these regulatory efforts depends on the effectiveness of their implementation, and both regulators and industry players have a key role to play. It is through accountability, responsibility and collaboration that we can ensure safer experiences online.

By creating safety tech solutions, we want to help solve compliance and safeguarding problems with age assurance, identity authentication and content moderation.

The Need for Regulation

Addressing Online Threats. The internet has many benefits to offer, from building connections to accessing information, it has revolutionised the way we interact and do business. It has also come with risks for vulnerable groups who face various dangers, including cyberbullying, online fraud, and exposure to harmful content.

Over the past few years, regulation has emerged in different parts of the world to help create clear rules and guidelines to reduce these risks and keep individuals safe from harm.

Protecting Vulnerable Populations. Certain demographics, such as children, are more vulnerable to online threats. Robust regulation takes into account the specific needs of these populations, establishing safeguards and restrictions to shield them from age-inappropriate content, exploitation, and potential harm.

The Call for Effective Enforcement 

Accountability in Action. Effective regulation demands accountability. Regulators have a key role to play in enforcing the rules put in place, and Industry players must be held responsible for complying with the legal requirements.

VerifyMy believes that accountability fosters a culture of responsibility, encouraging businesses to prioritise the safety and well-being of users in their online practices.

Responsible Business Practices. Enforcement of regulations ensures businesses adopt responsible data handling practices, user protection, and content moderation.

At VerifyMy, we understand the importance of responsible business conduct and actively contribute to the creation and implementation of industry standards that go beyond regulatory requirements.

Collaboration for Holistic Solutions

Stakeholder Collaboration. Successful regulation requires collaboration between stakeholders. Governments, businesses, advocacy groups, and technology providers must work together to create holistic solutions.

VerifyMy actively engages in collaborative initiatives, supporting our clients and regulators globally to collectively address the challenges of online safety.

Global Approach. As an advocate for responsible practices, VerifyMy encourages a global approach to online regulation. Consistent standards across borders create a more cohesive and effective framework for protecting users online.
