Readiness Assessment Level 1

Pillar: Digital Identity | Type: Conformity | Level: 1

Through a documentation review, establish understanding of organizational policies, plans, and procedures and how they are applied to business and/or solution operation. The deliverable will be a summary report containing the results of the assessment, highlighting and explaining areas of non-conformity. The report would indicate that IDLab performed a documentation review.


Readiness Assessment Level 2

Pillar: Digital Identity | Type: Conformity | Level: 2

Through a high level arm’s-length examination of technology solution and operation, demonstrate compliance with policies, plans, and procedures. The deliverable will be a detailed report containing the results of the assessment, as well as insights and recommendations on areas of non-conformity. The report would indicate that IDLab performed an arm’s length examination of the technology solution.


That's what they say ;-)

“Canada’s first IDlab is an initiative that the Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) is proud to have helped establish. As the DIACC pushes significant projects forward, such as the launch of the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework, we are glad to have a partner like the IDLab by our side.”
