Understanding identity data intelligence

We describe ourselves as specialists in this field. To understand this definition it can be broken down into its three components:

  • Identity - the characteristics by which we’re all known, including official, attributed, biometric and behavioural factors
  • Identity data - GBG has partnerships with over 200 data providers around the world, both public and private sector, giving us access to an unrivalled breadth of identity data
  • Identity data intelligence - our best-in-class technology references this identity data, giving organisations the intelligence they need to make decisions about the consumers they serve and the people they employ

Our fuel

We combine trillions of data records from all over the world relating to people’s identity to help our customers make the right decisions. Our market-leading data aggregation process brings together data from more than 200 partners and over 400 datasets.
