McLean, Va. – December 5, 2019 ID.me, the industry leader in secure online Identity verification, today announced an identity proofing and authentication solution for businesses required to comply with the upcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). ID.me’s highly secure platform empowers businesses to streamline identity verification to get compliant with CCPA as well as reduce the risks associated with data breaches and hacks.
